Nelson, Kenneth

Date: Monday, November 30, 1987

Interview 75c : In this 1987 interview with Joel Cook, Kenneth Nelson (1915-1992) provides some biographical detail not covered in his earlier interviews. He again tells of working in Southern Pine Lumber Company's Land & Timber Department and working under Dave Kenley, but he does it less anecdotally than in the two interviews with Megan Lambert in 1985. With much insight, Nelson also contrasts the working conditions and attitudes of the 1930's with those of the 1980's.
