Wiltgen, Martin C. (Marti), 1935-1995. Oral History Interview, 30 October and 15 November 1989.
The Martin C. (Marti) Wiltgen collection consists of an audiocassette, a CD duplicate of the audiocassette, and a transcript an oral history interview conducted between Wiltgen and Julie M. Arndtsen during the fall of 1989. Wiltgen worked as a humanities teacher at Mankato West High School. In the interview, he discussed the changes and continuities that occurred during his teaching career. He believed that changing social mores caused the most significant changes in the teaching profession. Furthermore, he noted changes in curricula, teaching styles, and the responsibilities of educators. As a side note, Martin recalled his reasons for opting out of the local teachers’ union after years of union activism.
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.
