HIST-051X-95: The Cold War and the San Francisco Bay Area

CRN: 24324, 2 Units
Instructor: Nannette Regua

The Cold War had an economic, political, technological, and cultural impact on the San Francisco region. After World War II, the United States worked steadfastly to protect itself from a nuclear attack by the Soviet Union. Bay Area residents created fall-out shelters and practiced “duck and cover” exercises in public schools. By the 1950s, mass hysterical fear of communism was illustrated in the House Un-American Activities Committee's (HUAC's) attempts to expose practicing communists who worked in federal government and in Hollywood.
