Ray Mariucci Interview Transcript (Part of the Italian American Oral History Project)

 Digital Record


This document is a transcript of an interview with Ray Mariucci. I do not currently have access to the original audio, but the transcript has many blanks, which leads me to guess that even the non-blank portions of the transcript are not entirely accurate. Topics include where he was born in Italy, moving to Iron Mountain as a small child, food, the Depression, sports and entertainment, bocce ball, education, family traditions, his service in World War II, and how he met his wife.
