Abstract Interview of Mattie Foley by James Blaney.

Interviewer's description-
"Mrs. Foley was born in Jellico, Tennessee in 1920. Her father decided to establish a dry goods business in Harlan so the family moved in 1930, by driving a Studebaker automobile from Jellico on a narrow wagon road which wound between the railroad and the Cumberland River. Mrs. Foley recalls that the trip took 16 hours and often they had to stop and rebuild parts of the road so they could continue. She later married a physician and settled in Loyall, Kentucky. She recalls the horrible injuries coal miners suffered as a result of poor safety conditions and how crowded hospital facilities were as a result."
