Overview

The Curt Connaughty collection contains an audiocassette tape, a CD duplicate of the audiocassette, and transcript of an oral history interview conducted between Connaughty and Wayne Eklund during the fall of 1988. Connaughty worked originally as an industrial arts teacher and then as a principal at Eden Prairie High School in Eden Prairie, Minnesota between 1955 and 1986 when he retired from public education to become a real estate agent. In the interview, Connaughty discussed the growth of Eden Prairie and the desire of local parents to have a school system that was comparable with Edina schools. Furthermore, he commented on his career, the community, the changes that administrators faced, teachers, professional organizations, students, and parents. He concluded the interview by expressing his thoughts on education in general and his transition from education to his new career as a real estate agent.

This oral history interview was conducted as a requirement for the graduate level Educational Foundations course entitled History of Education in American Culture at Mankato State University in Mankato, Minnesota.
