When StoryCorps opened its microphones to Houstonians, the first interview was with Gloria and Andrea White. The mother and wife of Houston Mayor Bill White were asked to participate and they agreed immediately. As pleased as we were to get their cooperation, we were even more thrilled at their obvious enthusiasm for the project.
Once they arrived at the StoryCorps Mobile Recording Studio parked at the main entrance of the Houston Museum of Natural Science, everyone involved in the project fell in love with them. They couldn’t have been have been more charming and unassuming. You’ll hear in their interview how honest and unguarded they were. Both ladies opened up and shared personal stories about days gone by. Gloria even shared a little treasure about becoming pregnant with her first child, the future mayor of Houston.
