Kathryn Gibbons and Maxine Holloron recall their childhood days in the early 1900s in the Corvallis area. They speak about their neighbors and classmates, recounting arguments they would get into with the group they walked to school with. They discuss the relationship of the country school to the church and how it served as a social hub for the community, housing Christmas programs, box socials and Sunday school. They talk about their family members, recounting where their siblings are now, and what brought their parents to Corvallis in the first place. Kathryn briefly describes her teaching career and the places it took her.
