Jun 30, 2021 Season 1 Episode 21

Join David Leonard and Grace McEachern in their October 9, 1978 interview. McEachern discusses her time on her family's farm as well as her experience working as a teacher in the Edmonton area. McEachern's perspective is particularly interesting as she was the first teacher in the Oliver area, which was the first school in the Ellerslie district. 

This interview was originally recorded on a 5 inch open reel tape and was digitized by an archivist on August 28th, 2020.

These interviews were recorded in the 1960s, 70s, 80s. Both social attitudes and language standards have changed since that time.  Some opinions expressed and language used may be offensive to listeners today.
