Oral History IV

September 7, 1979, Neenah-Menasha Daily Northwestern
This is another in Dr. O'Brien's series of oral histories on various topics pertaining to the Twin Cities.  I found this edition, concentrating on life during the Depression to be fascinating, as it is first-hand accounts from folks who lived through the bad times.  My Mom used to talk about hoboes showing up at her back door and her mother giving them something to eat.   After reading all this, I guess that wasn't just idle talk.
