Early 20th Century Government Promoted Rural Sanitation

Carol Taylor

Carol Taylor, chairman of the Hunt County Historical Commission, says her husband Mike, a tax accountant, recently brought home an early-20th Century pamphlet published by the state and federal government promoting rural sanitation.  One of his clients had found the pamphlet, which was in nearly mint condition.  Waste disposal was a problem for rural people long after sanitation systems came to the cities, Carol says.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
