Interview Summary

Emily Saugman first met Mary Breckinridge while a student at Crescent College in Eureka Springs, Arkansas; during that time Breckinridge married Richard Thompson, president of the college. Saugman was subsequently in Breckinridge's French class and tells of Breckinridge's imaginative approach to teaching the language. The informant comments upon Breckinridge as a public speaker and also mentions idiosyncrasies in regard to hairstyle and hats. Some information is given concerning Richard Thompson, whom Saugman encountered in later years. She also recalls the names of a number of FNS couriers. Saugman indicates that she took the picture of Mary Breckinridge and her son that hangs in the lobby of Mary Breckinridge Hospital in Hyden.
