Subject

Racism, early 20th Century

Description

Yntema, teacher, discusses early 20th century life in Champaign County, Illinois:
upper-class family and home life, childhood, family vacations, women's suffrage,
the towns of Urbana and Champaign, Depression, and banking business of the
Busey family. She also talks about teaching in Crossnore, South Carolina, trips to
Europe, living in Waukegan, Illinois, her husband's family, and her impressions of
African Americans. She also briefly mentions the University of Illinois at Urbana,
an American Indian reservation, and a Mississippi plantation.

Some of her remarks on African-Americans in Champaign-Urbana appear on pages 40-42 (page 35-37 according to page numbers) as she discusses "Ivory," a local African-American (she calls Negro), an itinerant worker she remembers from her childhood.
