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.
