Scholars have produced many works on the impact of World War II on California, but until now the state’s experience in World War I has been largely ignored. Diane North fills this void with her new book, a comprehensive social history of the state during the Great War. Dr. North, a former member of the Cal Studies seminar, is Professor of History at the University of Maryland University College. She received her Ph.D. at UC Davis and has previously taught at San Francisco State.
The session will be at the UCB Institute for Research on Labor and Employment, 2521 Channing Way (just east of Telegraph Ave.) on Tuesday, October 16, from 7 to 9:15 p.m. Free admission and dinner.
