Robert Huxtable transcript
Description An oral history from Robert "Bob" Huxtable. He grew up on a family farm in the Delta Mills area of greater Lansing in the early 20th century, attended MSU, and spent most of his career in the paper and printing industry. He had a strong interest in automobiles and was the owner of a Curved Dash Oldsmobile, to which he made some modifications. He also liked inventing things and was working on a soda machine at the time of this interview. Bob Huxtable was interviewed by James Walkinshaw and Helen Jones Earley on August 11, 1988 at the Oldsmobile History Center in the Oldsmobile Education and Development Center, North.
