Overview

The Gertrude Wehking collection contains a transcript and two audiocassettes of an interview conducted between Wehking and John J. Hand during October and December 1990. In the interview, Wehking discussed her teaching and media specialist experiences while working at the elementary school in St. Francis, Minnesota from the early 1960s through 1988. Primarily, she discussed maintaining adequate staff and facilities for a continually growing school district, and the troubles that confronted students, teachers, and parents regarding the persistent needs for more money, classrooms, and educators.
