Interview Summary

Carolyn Gay was born in 1948 in Leslie County. She relates school experiences and talks about a woman's role on a mountain farm. Gay also discusses political rallies and box suppers that she recalls from her childhood. She indicates that social life changed dramatically in the 1960s and 1970s; due to increased travel and access to radio, television, and the telephone, people in Leslie County socialized much less in 1979 than before. Gay's father, born in 1872, helped Mary Breckinridge obtain the land for the Brutus Center and have the center built. Gay discusses her mother's and her own experiences with FNS care in childbirth. She also talks about the local people and the publicity they have received.
