Mr. Eames was born outside of Morris in 1893. Having served overseas in World War I, he returned to Morris where he and his father purchased and operated a grain elevator. He subsequently sold the elevator and started the first "jobbing" operation in West Central Minnesota. In this interview, Mr. Eames talks about public sentiment prior to the United States' entry into World War I and his experiences in France during the war. Other topics discussed include farming and the grain elevator business during the 1920s, prohibition, the depression and its effects on the grain business and farm subsidies.
