Raymond J. Weber was eighteen years old at the time of the 1937 flood. He was a senior at St. Xavier High School and lived with his parents at Baxter and Payne Streets in Louisville. The Weber home missed the flood area by about two blocks. Mr. Weber tended to the furnace at St. Boniface Catholic Church on Liberty Street during the flood. The church was used as a shelter for flood victims. He describes the pontoon bridge at Baxter and also discusses Louisville as it was in 1937. Index available.
