Washington State in Wartime: The Home Front in 1942

March 14 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Although Washington State numbered only 1.7 million at the War’s outset, it supplied crucial resources in millions of tons of food and raw materials, thousands of airplanes and tanks and hundreds of ships. No state was more profoundly affected economically by the introduction and expansion of war industries. Through seldom-seen film clips, radio broadcast excerpts and rarely viewed photographs, those early days of the war are vividly captured in detail.

Join us as John Jensen shares rarely known stories and anecdotes about a nation at the start of an all-encompassing conflagration and the exploits of a state that contributed more per capita to the war effort than any other.
