Omaha Folklore Project: Interview with Hazel Livingston

The oral history interview of Hazel Livingston was conducted by UNO student Dennis Stone on November 15, 1976. Livingston was born and raised in a low income family in Omaha, Nebraska. In her interview, Livingston talked about her life during the Great Depression. Because her family was already in poverty, Livingston related that she did not feel a significant change during those hard times. However, Livingston did recall the worry she felt from her parents and friends during this time. Even though she could feel the strain on her parents, Livingston remembered some pleasant memories such as playing and having fun with other children and staying up late when her parents went out to play cards with friends., UNO Libraries' Archives & Special Collections, 00:26:41
