- Eugène St. Pierre oral history with Eloise A. Brière
Oral history with man born into a Canadian family in Northampton Aug. 21, 1910. Studied in Canada, but did not complete his course and returned to Northampton where there were many more Canadians then than now, perhaps 1,000 or 1,200 families in his parish, mostly speaking French. Children studied French at the parochial school (Sacre Coeur). Most French were concentrated in the lower part of town south of Main Street and Bridge Street. Could live most of life speaking only French in town; social clubs. Began working at 16 in a silk mill. Family.
