Daytona Beach during World War II
Florida was never the same after World War II, transformed from the South’s least populous state by an influx of 2 million servicemen and women, and igniting a modern civil rights movement, new roles for women, and the dawn of the Florida Dream.
Gary R. Mormino is an American historian, author, frequent contributor to the Tampa Bay Times, the Frank E. Duckwall Professor of History Emeritus and past director of the Florida Studies Program at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg.
