This interview is one of a series conducted concerning West Virginia business owners. Born in Syria, Mr. Betros relates his life experiences in Syria, the type of government there, and the procedure he went through to get to the United States. He mentions that he used to "pack peddle" in West Virginia, talks about food and its preservation in Syria, and then goes into a discussion of his linen business, begun in 1924. The rest of the interview is centered around Mr. Betros's Persian rug business.
