Lemuel “Mutt” Mowatt speaks on his family history throughout the United States of America, dating back four generations to his great grandparents. He speaks on his father’s business ventures in Victor, Montana, ranging from a hotel to a saloon to a real estate business. He draws from a book he has written on his family history often, recounting how his great grandmother lived with Brigham Young as a small child, and his grandfather’s influence in Victor with his various business ventures. He explains how his immediate family spread out from Montana to other parts of the United States, and where his children are currently living and what they are up to. He remembers his childhood, playing basketball in high school, working his way through college, and opening a couple of drug stores in Montana with various partners. He also mentions his work as a rail electrician for the government during World War Two.
