Description

Clarence Goldberg recalls his family history, including his parents’ emigration from Sweden to the United States. He describes his experiences as a miner, the development of Butte, Montana’s mining industry, the health and safety conditions in the mines, and the rise of organized labor. Goldberg also discusses the life of a miner, placing the occupation into the broader cultural context of Butte as it existed during the early 20th century. He talks about bootlegging, prostitution, and local businesses in Butte.
