Transcript of the interview with Gladys and Glenn Hollar, 26 February 1980 (H-0128)

Description

Gladys Irene Moser Hollar and her husband, Glenn Hollar, describe their childhood in rural North Carolina and their working lives in the glove industry and elsewhere. The Hollars grew up in large families in which everyone had to contribute to eke out a living. As a married couple, the Hollars spent most of their lives near Conover, NC, moving from job to job and weathering the 1918 influenza epidemic, the Great Depression, and hostile supervisors before reaching retirement. In this interview, the couple shares recollections about laboring and rural life in the early 20th century. The influenza pandemic is discussed on p. 25.
