Title:World War I and Local Change in America: Federal War Production and Class Relations in Portland, Oregon

Abstract:I argue that this program represented a novel form of and scope for federal policing. The new approach relied upon executive branch agencies working in tandem with local authorities and cooperative interest groups, a more regularized and persistent strategy than the sporadic use of the military that preceded the war. I consider the intersection of interest groups with the needs of the government---keeping the arenas of industrial relations and civil liberties, critical to the organizations of workers, at the center of inquiry. I analyze interaction among: the local political establishment, AFL unions, shipyard owners, 'enemy aliens,' and anti-capitalist radicals.
