Creator (LCNAF)
  • UH - Houston History Project
Interviewer (LCNAF)
  • Wiltz, Steven
Date May 1, 2003
Description Altha Lee Kennedy is a life-long resident of Lafayette and is the sister of J. C. Chargois. She was born in 1915 and began working for Sun Oil in 1942 as a stenographer. She worked for them, making her way up to personal secretary, until she retired in 1970, when Sun Oil merged with Sunray DX. Throughout the interview she stresses that Sun Oil was family oriented when she worked for them, but is no longer like that. She describes how oil business moved into Lafayette during the 1930s and the town, particularly the location of different things, during that time period. She provides a vivid description of the floods that inundated the area in the late 1920s.
