Description

This interview deals primarily with Alice Tripp's campaign for Governor in the 1979 DFL primary race (in which she won 20% of the vote, the first woman in the state to do so), but it also touches upon Tripp's family history, the development of her political ideals, and her role as a woman activist in West Central Minnesota. Some of the political issues and concerns which Alice Tripp comments on include: international politics, energy and corporate power, labor unions, and cooperatives.
