Interview Summary

Mary Breckinridge was a friend of Mary Lansing's mother and also her grandmother. Lansing's mother, Elizabeth Lansing, visited Wendover in 1946 to conduct research for a book about the FNS entitled "Rider on the Mountains," which was published the following year. Mary Lansing served as a courier during the summer of 1968. She recalls assisting nurse-midwives with medical treatment and helping to transport children from the area to a hospital in Cincinnati. Lansing, who was working in a congressional office at the time of the interview, believes that the Appalachian region is still not sufficiently understood by government leaders and outsiders in general.
