Home Front Stories of World War II

At this month's History Pub, listen to stories from individuals who worked on the Oregon home front during World War II. The panel will include: Harry Hendricks, who worked the graveyard shift at Vancouver's Kaiser Shipyard as a teenager; Ellen McFadden, who served as one of the nation's youngest certified Red Cross volunteers at Portland's Union Station canteen; Jean Matsumoto, who was sent with her family to Idaho's Minidoka Relocation Center where she was interned for three years; and Sharon Williams, who experienced wartime conditions as a young child growing up in North Portland.

This program was offered in collaboration with the Oregon Historical Society's exhibit, World War II: A World at War, A State Transformed as a part of the History Pub series and was recorded at McMenamins Kennedy School in Portland, Oregon on August 31, 2015.
