The wizard of Washington : Emil Hurja, Franklin Roosevelt, and the birth of public opinion polling by Melvin G Holli( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Holli shows us how Hurja, through a combination of networking, political acumen, and dogged persistence, convinced the Democratic National Committee to allow him to apply the new science of polling to Roosevelt's presidential campaign of 1932. Roosevelt's triumph at the polls in that year and again in 1936, as well as the spectacular 1934 Democratic mid-term congressional victory, is legendary. What few people know is what occurred behind the scenes in the 1930s to secure the dominance of Roosevelt and his party. Emil Hurja was the driving force behind the Democrats during the New Deal Era
World War II Chicago by Paul Michael Green( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chicagoans united in their World War II effort against the Axis powers. They signed up for military service, rallied to the call for increased wartime production, and aided the war effort through the rationing of food and gasoline. From fast growing victory gardens to mini-monuments to local servicemen-Chicago, the "City of Neighborhoods," saw all of its geographic parts vie for recognition and honor in a ethnic mosaic of patriotism. The war years ushered in changing times for Chicago. The city became an important military center as thousands of troops trained or passed through en route to the war fronts, while Chicago's civilian population engaged in manufacturing war materials. As defense plants sprang up all over Chicago, African-American tenant farmers, who migrated from the South, and women replaced the male labor force. --Publisher
