Abstract Interview of Coye Gilbert by Mary Beth Leidolf.

Interviewer's description-
"During this interview with Mr. Coye Gilbert he talks of how the Lynch Commissary was like a small city when he started working there in 1934. He recalls that the commissary housed a garage, pharmacy, post office, restaurant, grocery, clothing and furniture stores. It was also a recreational center for the miners and their families. He states that even though there were separate sections for blacks and whites, the commissary adequately filled the needs of the people."
