Jan. 20, 2022, The Ocean Beach Historical Society presented: San Diego During World War II – Life on the Home Front presentation by Linda Canada who enlighten guests about the local effects if WWII. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, in early December 1941, had an overnight impact on San Diego, and civilians were affected nearly as much as the military. The City’s population doubled, but there was no increase in city services, transportation, or water supply. Rapid expansion in military and manufacturing jobs drew workers from all over the country, and overnight, San Diego was open for business 24/7. Shortages of food, clothing, and building supplies impacted everyone to some extent. We heard about the experiences of some locals, who began to doubt whether San Diego was a place they wanted to stay.
