Summary
"This study examines the impact of the later New Deal on a war-boom community in upstate New York during World War II. The Village of Sidney, located in New York State's Southern Tier, was home to the Scintilla Magneto Division of Bendix Aeronautical Corporation [i.e. Bendix Aviation Corporation), which employed nearly 9,000 workers at its wartime peak . . . This dissertation attempts to place the experiences of the residents of this small, rural community in the context of larger events which unfolded on the American home front during the war." - Abstract
