About this product
- DescriptionMORE STORIES OF A SMALL TOWN BOONTON USA is our second book of Oral History stories about people growing up in Boonton NJ during the 1930s and 1940s. These 40+ senior citizens (and a few people t yet seniors) describe their experience in the melting pot called Boonton. They are people brought up with conscience, character, courage and commitment. No matter where they travel, l Boonton is truly home. The song title, Everybody kws my name is applicable here. Come back to Boonton even 50 years later, and find old friends and classmates ready to take you out to lunch! These people use words like happy, grateful and optimistic - and mean them. Even though they faced huge difficulties in the Depression and facing WWII, they laugh when telling their stories. Sandi was fired after getting married because JCP&L had a policy t to employ married women. Dick's plane was shot down over Japan in WWII and he commented that he enjoyed parachuting. Vivian was offered a job teaching high school but in the 1930s, she could t live independently as it was taboo, so she found a room as a boarder. These are ordinary people and yet they are extraordinary!
