"The National Emergency has affected the life of every man, woman and child in this country. Change has been the one thing that has been stable. Men have been called from every walk of life to help defend the ideals of democracy."
In 1942, graduates from Needham Broughton High School were celebrating the sesquicentennial (150th) anniversary of the founding of Raleigh, NC. in the pages of their senior Latipac yearbook. The United States has only been involved in WWII for a few months when the Latipac was issued, however, the influence of the War was already visible in snapshots of war bond sales, scrap drives and Red Cross work. Find a yearbook from later in the War and compare its contents to the 1942 Latipac. Does the impact of WWII seem less or more prominent?
