Index of Individuals

This book is a compilation of interviews done by young people in the folklore classes or by members of the Junior Historical Society of West Iron County High School. Over 300 local people were interviewed. An attempt was made to make these experiences appear universal to the settlers of Iron County, so in many interviews very few if any of the individuals are named. This book can be purchased from the Iron County Museum Historical Society. The telephone number is (906) 265-2617. Indexed April, 2004 by Dale Safford.
