Doris Gates
By Erin Horner
  

1     Doris Gates was born on November 26, 1901. She grew up in Mt. View, California. Then she became a librarian. She was a children's librarian in Fresno, California, from 1930 until 1940.
 
2     During the Great Depression, Ms. Gates spent a lot of time with migrant workers and their families. Migrant workers are people who move from place to place to find work. Many migrant workers work on different farms during different seasons. They pick one type of fruit or vegetable until it is harvested. Then they move to another city or state and pick the next ripe crop. This is very hard for the families of the workers. Migrant children are forced to leave their homes and their friends. They have to move from place to place with their parents. During the Depression, money was scarce. The work was difficult. It was a hard life for both the migrant worker and his family.
