The Greatest Generation: Medford in WWII with Larry Mullaly

April 6 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Larry Mullaly will provide insight into what it was like in the Rogue Valley during the Second World War. Families could not easily purchase shoes and clothing; food and gasoline were rationed. New automobiles—even tires—could not be had. The war also transformed the city of Medford, an agricultural center with less than 12,000 inhabitants. Construction personnel and army trainees came from nearby Camp White, and its airport was under the control of the military.

As local historian and a trustee of the Southern Oregon Historical Society, Larry Mullaly has given many Windows in Time presentations on regional social history.

The monthly Windows in Time lunchtime lectures feature well-known writers and historians and bring alive the people, values, and events that shaped our southern Oregon heritage. Lectures are jointly sponsored by the Southern Oregon Historical Society (SOHS) and Jackson County Library Services.

The Windows in Time series is currently held on Online on the first Wednesday of the month. The program is one hour, from Noon – 1 p.m. and is led by a variety of guest speakers. It’s a free event but registration is required.
