SAN DIEGO 101:
San Diego Between the Wars
TUESDAY, JUNE 8, 2021 | 12:00PM – 1:00PM | ON ZOOM
ABOUT THE EVENT
During World War I, San Diego emerged from its “sleepy little town” status to start the process of becoming a military city. World War II brought people, technology, and industries that forever changed the city. But what was going on here between those conflicts? The United States suffered through Prohibition, followed by the Stock Market Crash and the Great Depression, but somehow things were different here in San Diego. You’ll learn about the people, politics, and events which affected the city’s progress between the wars.
