Wellesley the Home Front 1940-1945

The Wellesley local history collection has a wonderful oversize book of the publicity of the Wellesley Committee on Public Safety during the war years 1940-1945. It is filled with articles published by the Townsman, Boston Globe, Boston Herald and Wellesley Ledger.

Defense information, air raid planning, scrap collection, food and nutrition classes, blackouts, first aid, knitting, and other public safety articles reflect what life was like in Wellesley during the war years.

Ask to see it at the reference desk.
