StoryCorps: A Potsdam mother remembers her son

Listen to this story
StoryCorps is an oral history project based on the idea that the stories of everyday people are the most important and interesting of all. At permanent StoryCorps booths in New York and mobile booths traveling the country, history is being captured daily. Last July, when a StoryCorps mobile booth stopped in Canton, its visitors included Anne Malone, who interviewed her friend, former Potsdam mayor Ruth Garner. Garner remembers her son, a doctor in San Francisco, who died of AIDS in the early 80's.
