From Francie Potter,  President of the Allegany Area Historical Association:
"When my daughter, Linda Potter, was a grad student at the University of Michigan, she participated in a Media History seminar that focused on creating an oral history of the 'home front" during World War II.  She interviewed her father, Bob Potter, for the project.   We think you might enjoy it and it might also bring back some memories for our older members."
