Overview

The Gordon Lewis Hakes collection consists of an audiocassette tape, CD duplicate of the audiocassette, and transcript of an oral history interview conducted between Hakes and David A. Thomas during the fall of 1990. Hakes worked as a public school teacher from 1950 to 1989. During his career as a teacher, coach, and administrator, he taught in Balsam Lake, Wisconsin, Brownton, Minnesota, and Mankato, Minnesota. In the interview, he discussed the changes and continuities that he believes have occurred during his teaching career. He credits political, social and economic forces as being the catalysts for change.

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.
