[Interview with Gertrude Johnson]

Description: Photocopy of a transcript of an interview with Gertrude Johnson, a long time resident of Deep Eddy, Texas. She talks about her work with the church and school in the area and how at one point the garden that she grew produced a 17.5 pound sweet potato.
