Interview Summary

Harvey L. Wilson (1880-1982) was born in South Carolina to a farming family. Even though he had a job as a railroad man in the South, he moved North in 1917 to find better work, hoping to find a job in the war plants or unloading trucks. He found many different jobs in Baltimore and Philadelphia, the most long-term being a mobile grocer in a variety of neighborhoods. Wilson shared his stories in an interview in November 1981, less than a year before his death.
