Oral History

September 12, 1979, Neenah-Menasha Daily Northwestern
Time for another of those great Dr. Michael O'Brien oral histories he conducted in 1979.  Today's installment covers the wide ranging social church history of Neenah-Menasha.  That comment about Catholics and Lutherans blasting each other is fascinating, though not without precedent in my own life.  Once upon a time in the early 70's I had dated a Lutheran girl for a short time.  She didn't come out and say it to me, but I got the impression our relationship ended because of her Mom's "problem" with me.  Guess old habits (and prejudices) die hard.
