Transcript of the interview with Dorcas Elizabeth Carter, 25 June 1999 (K-0235)
This interview is one of a series of interviews that focus on coastal North Carolina counties where World War II defense industries and military bases sparked rapid and unprecedented change. The coast, previously a land of sharecroppers, small farmers, fishing villages, and timber camps, was transformed as thousands of civilian workers poured into industry and women and African Americans entered skilled occupations for the first time. See page 7 of the tape log for mention of influenza.
