Interview with Tempie Young, September 6, 1978

Project: Frontier Nursing Service Oral History Project

Interview Summary

Tempie Young continues from a previous interview her discussion of life in a coal camp. Because of the infrequency of mine accidents in the early 1920s, she was not unduly concerned about her husband's safety. Twelve of her thirteen children were delivered by a self-taught local midwife and one by an FNS nurse. Young tells of her family making doll furniture to send to England at the request of the nurses. In addition, Young comments upon changes in the FNS in recent times.
