Interview Summary

Glenda Davis was born in 1919 in Clay County, where no professional medical assistance was available. As a child, she became acquainted with the Clara Ford Center in her district; as a young adult, Davis served on a local FNS committee. At one point a new water source was needed for the hospital, and the services of a local "water witch" were successfully employed. Six out of nine children in her family attended college, and Davis taught a one-room school in Clay County after she graduated. She talks about her Cincinnati cousins coming home to the farm to work during the Depression. Davis describes FNS activities and gives her recollections of Mary Breckinridge as well as other FNS personnel.
