Malamud at Oregon State: A Digital Humanities Project

General Politics

To give you a general idea of what was happening on the national stage around the time of Malamud's publication of A New Life, we've created a timeline of significant political events, especially as they pertain to the situation in Corvallis. Feel free to peruse at your leisure, and acquaint yourself with the political atmosphere of the post-WWII United States.

When you've finished there, click through the paths to find more detail on Henry Wallace's presidential campaign, including a confrontation between him and OSC President Strand in Portland, and the impact of the Lysenko Theory in U.S. academia.
