Interview with Thomas Dunlop, 1985 February 22 [audio]
Dunlop describes the house in which he grew up, games the children played growing up, newspapers and reading materials, learning his trade at Bethlehem Steel, his education, and day-to-day life during his childhood.
Thomas Dunlop (b. 1905) emigrated from Scotland in 1913 after his father saved enough money working in a tile shop to bring over his family, eventually working for DuPont. He lived in Breck's Lane, where the family took in boarders. He worked as a chauffeur for Hallock du Pont from 1928 until 1932.
