I have a very elderly (86) aunt who, by some miracle of genetics, has full recall of days gone by. She’s agreed to take questions about her experiences during the Great Depression and WW2.
She survived a ruptured appendix before the advent of antibiotics, potential starvation during the 30s (Grandma sewed for the WPA and stood in line for food rations), war rationing, and tons of other stuff.
She’s a wonderful lady and has a ton of stories to tell.
Please do keep in mind that said aunt was a child during the Depression and the war, so political questions will probably be met with “I don’t know”
But she does have a very good memory and is willing to let you all pick her brain about daily life during that period.
Don’t pass up the chance – she’s not getting any younger.
Leave any questions in the comments and I’ll pass them on.
