New Orleans saw tremendous growth in population and in popular perception during the war. Kimberly Guise, Assistant Director for Curatorial Services at The National WWII Museum will present on aspects of the city in wartime including stories from the collection of The National WWII Museum and from the Beauregard-Keyes House, site of the Beauregard House Center for Service Men.
