Interview Summary

Prichard discusses his move to Washington in 1939, explaining that his living arrangements were very pleasant, but the mood was dampened as World War Two began. He describes his contact with President Roosevelt, as well as the work of various politicians in Washington at the time, particularly in Congress. He discusses Kentucky's politics and economic situation during the war, and the socioeconomic changes that he noticed when he returned home after the war. He speculates on why the role of Kentuckians in national politics shrank in the decades following the war.
