Abstract

John Bourne states that his third occupation is being a genealogist. Due to his affinity for ancestral research he provides a lengthy sweep of the Bourne family history and how they came to Cleveland. At a young age he started to work at Central National Bank and he worked himself up through the ranks. He eventually transferred to Bank One. He soon left the banking world behind and got involved with commercial real estate. He has always been very involved in the University Circle area, especially with the Church of the Covenant. Throughout the interview Bourne mentions urbanization, suburbanization and the rise and fall of downtown Cleveland.
