Episode 24 – Virginia Ann House Veren

Birmingham, AL
Born 1931

“Politics has changed… we never saw them.”

I met Ann through a stranger at a coffee shop.  That stranger, Barbara, has now become a friend.  Ann Veren was one of the first I interviewed to make the point about politics having changed due to television and radio.  Imagine voting for someone you had never seen before, whose voice you may have heard on the radio once or twice.  Today’s political landscape is very different, and we are saturated with our candidates rhetoric.

Episode 9 – Juanita Laush

Portland, OR
Born 1923

“I had to type eight carbon copies, and always at 5pm, my boss would find something to change.”

Juanita worked most her career in medicine.  She first started as a Red Cross Nurse during the War, then went on as a Medical Assistant, eventually co-authoring a textbook on X-Ray and running her own business.  Naturally, she talked a lot about how medicine has changed for the better.
