Oral History

September 14, 1979, Neenah-Menasha Daily Northwestern

Dr. Michael O'Brien brings us another oral history from 1979.  Today's installment covers memories of educators from the past.  If there is a common thread to all these oral histories, it's that perseverance goes a long way.  These residents endured economic downturns and historic upheavals that tested the wills of parents, teachers, employers...everyone.  The 20th century was a crazy roller coaster ride- World War I, the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, World War II, and the post-war 1950's.  But having a dedication to one's work and a goal to achieve most often led to success.
