Description

Lillian McCammon describes growing up in New York state, her father’s general merchandise store, attending school in a rural New York community, and teaching herself to swim when she was very young. She discusses her decision to attend the University of Montana after falling in love with the west and discovering that UM had a synchronized swimming team, the Aquamaids. McCammon talks about joining the Aquamaids in 1951, her coaches and the team’s performances. She also describes the classes in Spanish, history, and accounting that she enjoyed, and living off-campus in the Synadelphic cooperative. McCammon reminisces about the friendships she made while living in Synadelphic and attending UM. She concludes by describing meeting her husband, working as a teacher in Choteau, Montana, and raising her family in Montana.
