Interview with A.G. Gaston
QUESTION 1
INTERVIEWER:

OK, DR. GASTON, YOU HAVE BEEN A VERY SUCCESSFUL BLACK MAN IN YOUR CAREER, SO THAT WHEN 1963 CAME AROUND, WHY YOU WERE ALREADY QUITE WEALTHY, SO I'M JUST WONDERING HOW, HOW YOU CAME BY YOUR SUCCESS, UH, IF YOU COULD JUST TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT.

A. G. Gaston:

I don't know about wealthy, but I had been around here a long time. Ninety-three years old, you know. And I worked over there at U.S. Steel for $3.10 a day, so it's a long time before I was wealthy, as you call it.
