Dot Murphy on the 1937 Flood

Dot Campbell Murphy was "14 going on 15" and living in Dayton, Ky., during the 1937 flood. In fact, the flood stole her 15th birthday celebration from her ... though her family made sure she eventually had the celebration. Dot volunteered in the VFW Hall's kitchen, and she told us, "I learned how to cook fresh vegetables!" Visit CET's 1937 Flood website for video and community memories.
