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.
