Abstract:

In September of 1939, Hitler's Blitzkrieg against Poland plunged Europe into a war that would last six years, embroil most of the world, and cause the deaths of more than 50 million people. In addition to the outbreak of World War II, many other major, and frequently violent, events are reported in TIME CAPSULE/1939; among them were Russia's bloody invasion of Finland and bloodless conquest of the Baltic States, Italy's seizure of Albania, and the end of Spain's Civil War. The year also had its gayer side. The U.S. staged World's Fairs in both New York and San Francisco; Joe Louis beat challenger Tony Galento; and Major Bowes was striking the "going" for radio's Original Amateur Hour. On the screen, Judy Garland skipped down the Yellow Brick Road to find "The Wizard of Oz." The U.S. Civil War's most romantic hero and heroine were re-created by Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh in "Gone With The Wind." The King and Queen of England came to visit and eat hot dogs with President and Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt. And college kids had a bizarre new eating fad: live goldfish.
