After the Day of Infamy: Man-on-the-Street Interviews Following the Attack on Pearl Harbor

http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/afcphhtml/afcphhome.html

Rating: 1, Awesome!

Description: After the Day of Infamy presents approximately twelve hours of opinions recorded in the days and months following the bombing of Pearl Harbor from more than two hundred individuals in cities and towns across the United States. On December 8, 1941 (the day after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor), Alan Lomax, assistant in charge of the Archive of American Folk Song (now the Archive of Folk Culture, American Folklife Center), sent a telegram to fieldworkers in ten different localities across the United States, asking them to collect "man-on-the-street" reactions of ordinary Americans to the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the subsequent declaration of war by the United States. A second series of interviews, called "Dear Mr. President," was recorded in January and February 1942. Both collections are included in this presentation. They feature a wide diversity of opinion concerning the war and other social and political issues of the day, such as racial prejudice and labor disputes. The result is a portrait of everyday life in America as the United States entered World War II. Standard 7.11.1

Comments: This set of primary sources are a great resource for students studying World War II. Sadly California was not a collection site.

European Recovery 50th Anniversary of the Marshall Plan

http://lcweb.loc.gov/exhibits/marshall/

Rating: 1, Awesome!

Description: In a now-celebrated speech delivered at the Harvard University commencement on June 5, 1947, Secretary of State George Catlett Marshall (1880-1959) proposed a solution to the wide-spread hunger, unemployment, and housing shortages that faced Europeans in the aftermath of World War II. Marshall's address was the culmination of increasing U.S. concern over the disintegrating European situation. The physical destruction of the war and the general economic dislocation threatened a breakdown of moral, social, and commercial life. Raw materials and food were in short supply, and war-damaged industries needed machinery and capital before production could be resumed. The plan was the boldest, most successful, and certainly the most expensive foreign policy initiative ever attempted in peacetime. Standards 10.9.3 and 11.7.8
