The War Years 1941 - 1945When war was declared in 1941, the city's civilian population exploded by more than 50,000 as workers streamed into the city. Transportation and housing facilities were soon overwhelmed. Trailers crowded once-empty land on the outskirts of the city. Homes for 3,000 families were built by the government on nearby mesas.
