Comparing and Contextualizing Oberlin's 1940 Census in HistoryForge
Join Ohio History Service Corps member Erin Robichaud as she shares OHC’s exciting progress on HistoryForge, a database that plots census information onto interactive map layers. Come ready to compare employment, divorce, and home ownership statistics from the 1910 & 1940 censuses. Erin will also discuss the cultural context and controversies surrounding the 1940 census – such as how the Great Depression influenced census questions and impacted Oberlin residents – and depict the enumerators who originally collected census data by hand.

This 45-minute Zoom program is open and free to the public, but registration is required.
