Santa Monica History Museum Reschedules Sunday’s History Program:

Due to the road closures because of the LA Marathon, the Santa Monica History Museum’s Discover the History program has been rescheduled from this Sunday to next Sunday, March 16.

In honor of Women’s History Month and in collaboration with the City of Santa Monica’s Commission on the Status of Women, the Santa Monica History Museum is celebrating Santa Monica Women of World War II in this unique program. 

“Immeasurable Contributions” will include a slide show of historical photographs, a corresponding short talk and focus exhibit.

American Women were crucial to the war effort—especially in Santa Monica. With so many men away at the front, women joined Douglas Aircraft in droves to build, test, and deliver necessary aircraft, patrolled the beaches on civil defense patrols, spearheaded and supported war bond efforts, served in service organizations that provided entertainment and goods to the troops, and even joined the armed services.

The celebration of women’s Immeasurable Contributions to World War II will take place on March 16 from 2-4 pm at the Santa Monica History Museum, 1350 7th Street. Doors open at 1:30 pm and parking is available in the adjacent parking garage.
