Interview Summary

Ora Reynolds was born in Auxier, Kentucky in 1913. She states that her mother was an excellent homemaker who wrote verse. Mrs. Reynolds recounts the story of the murder of Luly Viers, a young woman killed by her fiance. Mrs. Reynolds describes a devoted married life where her husband made breakfast, waited on her, and took over much of the child care of their two young daughters. Reynolds reflects on her husband's involvement with the United Mine Workers of America, and she recalls the long hours that her husband had to work. She remembers going to the store and upon hearing that one of the clerks was on vacation, she thought "Now, wouldn't that be something if a poor old coal miner could have a vacation!"
