Camp White Story

Southern Oregon Goes to War

In the transformation of rural Southern Oregon during WWII. At the onset of war in Europe, the need for training facilities was growing rapidly. One of the sites chosen was an area just outside of Medford, Oregon. Combined with a workforce and abundant building materials, the Army Corp of Engineers and local contractors transformed the property into a city of 35,000. The economy boomed and southern Oregon was changed overnight.

This program was produced in cooperation with The Camp White Museum.
