Keeping Time Across the Ages

At the StoryCorps booth in Bismarck, N.D., 81–year-old Virginia Fairbrother spoke with her daughter, Laurel Kaae.

Fairbrother grew up in Towner, N.D., during the Great Depression. Her father, Homer Hill, owned a drug store in town that her brother Donald took over and ran until 1975.

Fairbrother tells Kaae the story of a stranger who came to ask her father for a favor during the Great Depression.

Each Friday,Morning Edition airs a story from StoryCorps, the oral history project that's traveling the country, giving people the chance to learn about one another's lives. Copies are archived at the Library of Congress.
