recorded work description
Alice Smith discusses her father, who designed buildings in Butte, Montana, during the early 20th century. She describes growing up in Butte during the 1920s and 1930s, attending school and joining the glee club in high school. Smith talks about getting married and going camping and boating at Flathead Lake [Montana] for family vacations. She recalls her husband’s job as an oiler for the Anaconda Company and her family’s English heritage. An unidentified male speaker, likely Smith’s husband, is present during the interview and occasionally contributes to the conversation. The majority of his remarks are unintelligible. The audio for this interview is available at Archives and Special Collections, but has not yet been digitized.
