Welcome to Life on the Home Front — an exhibit and learning resource that explores the experiences of ordinary Oregonians on the home front during World War II, seen primarily through the records of the Oregon State Defense Council and records at the Oregon State Archives. This exhibit consists of the equivalent of over 400 printed pages of narrative text augmented by hundreds of images and thousands of pages of original documents describing Oregon before, during, and after World War II.
