About Caesar Interview (Part of the Italian American Oral History Project)
|Title:||About Caesar Interview (Part of the Italian American Oral History Project).|
|Type of Resource:||Sound Recording (Non-musical)|
The quality of this audio is very good, although there is occasionally some cross talk. However, none of the many speakers are identified. There appears to be no interviewer, just a group of friends and/or family talking to each other. It is unclear to what the title, "About Caesar," refers; it was taken from a label on the original tape. They do not indentify exactly where they are recording, but they mention several locations in the Keweenaw Peninsula. The speakers disuss mines, boarding houses, when various family members (identified only by first name) immigrated or married, childhood memories, school, railroads, logging, the local livery stable, how newspapers used to be better, the former and current population of towns in the Upper Peninsula, a local Jewish boys' camp, local Catholic parishes, strikes, hospitals and the state of medicine in the early twentieth century, and conflict between the Italian and Irish communities in the Keweenaw Peninsula.
