Repository: University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. College of Literature, Science, and the Arts
Collection: Personal Oral History
Description: My interview with Gerry Ritchie was the first of two I was to perform the evening of March 7th, 1999. She was also to be a part of a documentary, along with her husband, that would be completed for my final project in Dialogue of Violence. Although sharing no relation, I have already created a close bond with Mrs. Ritchie; through an acquaintance with her granddaughter. She resides in Macomb, Michigan, and was born in 1929. She attended high school during the time of World War II, and after claiming that she wouldn't remember much, she surprised us both. Following the rituals of me setting up the video camera, and her situating herself on her living room couch, we began with the formalities.
