Frank Quilico talks about his family's Italian roots and their arrival in Cle Elum, Washington. He talks about his father's background in South Dakotan hard rock mining and his confectionery store in Cle Elum. He talks about home life; recipes; lodges; education; and the effects of Prohibition, the Great Depression, the 1934 mine strike, and World War II on the family business. He also provides a geography of Cle Elum, locating businesses and families of the 1920s-1930s.
