Interview Summary

Mary Brewer came to Leslie County as a social worker with the WPA program in 1939. She published a collection of Leslie County stories entitled Of Bolder Men, later republished as Rugged Trails to Appalachia. Brewer indicates her concern over the image of local people conveyed by the media prior to her publication and specifies the image deliberately fostered by the FNS in fund-raising. She knew Mary Breckinridge and would have tea with her while conversing in French. Brewer also taught high school in Hyden. She comments upon local traditions as well as changes in the county over the years. Clyde Brewer remarks upon his work for the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) program in Leslie County in the 1930s.
