On November 28, 1997, Dr. Barbara F. Matthies, who spent her early years in Springfield and graduated from Springfield South High School, and who for the past thirty years has been a member of the faculty of Iowa State University, was interviewed by Tom Stafford of our local Springfield News Sun, regarding her career in which she took early retirement in May of 1997. She has been a world traveler and thus this interview is of interest for the archives of the Clark County Historical Society together with the recording tape of the voices of Barbara and Tom. Her father, Dr. Roland C. Matthies, made this recording of the interview and occasionally interjected a comment or a question.
