StoryCorps: Gladys Harbison and Pat Potts

By Mark Scott


Buffalo, NY – WBFO presents another story that was recorded at StoryCorps in Buffalo this past summer. Gladys Harbison is 85 years young. She was born in Pennsylvania oil country -- the small town of Pleasantville. One day, Gladys came across an advertisement from a Buffalo hospital that was seeking nursing students, launching her career as a registered nurse.

Gladys sat down at StoryCorps with her daughter Pat Potts to talk about her early years in healthcare. Click the audio player above to hear their conversation now or use your podcasting software to download it to your computer or iPod.
