Audio clip: Mary Ann Reed

Mary Ann Reed saved scrap materials for the war effort as a child in Bryan:

Mary Ann Reed: We would gather any scrap metal we could find; in fact, we'd walk along the railroad track picking it up. We would save any aluminum foil or any type of metallic paper that we could find. And everyone saved rubber bands; everyone had a big ball of rubber bands because rubber was in short supply and rubber was very much in demand, of course, for tires and other things in the war.
