Interview Summary

Onda Lee Holbrook's family moved to Auxier from Ohio in search of work. Her father became a coal loader at the mine and she was born in 1917 in Auxier. She recalls playing with other children and states that the children would play together "more like relatives than friends." She remembers that at Christmastime the women of Alice Lloyd College would bring each child a little toy or some little treat. She states that no one was embarrassed and that she does not think that there were any class tensions in Auxier. Holbrook also describes her mother as having the reputation of being the best housekeeper in the camp.
