Description

Esther “Es” Wilson and Vince Wilson, longtime residents of Missoula, Montana, both discuss attending the University of Montana in the 1940s, and describe the changes that have occurred on campus and within Missoula since that time. Vince Wilson provides a short, prepared overview of the Physical Therapy Program at the University of Montana, including how it was established and its development to receiving full accreditation and departmental status. Both Es and Vince Wilson offer their opinions on the impact of World War Two and the counter culture movement of the 1960s on the University and Missoula. They describe how those events affected UM sorority and fraternity structures as well as the attitudes of the University’s younger, incoming faculty members.
