Paul Jalbert (b.1938 in Auburn, Maine) followed his father into barbering. Paul's father, Alfred ("Fred") Jalbert was a self-taught hair-cutter who owned and operated his own store in New Auburn for nearly 30 years. Alfred passed the business to his son before retiring after 57 years as a barber. Paul continued to operate "Fred's Hairstyler's" until 2001, when he sold the business to go into semi-retirement himself. In this interview, with Sara Bolduc - a distant relative - on April 26, 2006, talks with Paul about the business, his time in the armed forces during the Cold War, and his friends in St Louis' parish choir.
