0705: Carrie Noble Kline Papers
Marshall University Archives and Special Collections
Corky is a pseudonym chosen by this transgender in her forties. She began life in the body of a male and has never lived in Appalachia. Her interview was conducted partly as a comparison to those stories recorded in the Appalachian region. This interview introduces the concept of social capital, the tools we acquire through our early socialization process, from which we can draw for the duration of our lives.
This interview focuses largely on Corky’s personal experience and academic research on the subject of “deadbeat dads,” particularly sexual minorities who have been denied access to their offspring.

This interview was made available as a result of the Honors 480 course, Trash or Treasure: An Introduction to Archives during the fall 2021 semester. This item was digitized and metadata was provided by Ashalia Aggarwal.
