A STORY FROM CHASING TIME: CHECK OUT THE STORY OF AUGIE BARBERI:
The lifespan of an average American man is 78 years, but by any standard, Augie Barberi is no ordinary man.
Barberi just celebrated his 107th birthday. Born in 1912, six years before the start of World War I, he has witnessed things that many of us only learned of through history books.
He is one of five children, born to Italian immigrants Augustine and Anna. They died when he was just a child.
The Interview Girl Foundation collects STORIES and shares those stories with the world. Augie Barberi’s story is brought to you by the Chicago Tribune and part of the Interview Girl Foundation’s CHASING TIME project.
