"A College Comes to Housing"

"A College Comes to Housing," a promotional film for the Vanport Extension Center, 1947.

Many returning veterans had married after the war and started families.  Recognizing the special needs of the targeted student body, the availability of family housing as well as other family-related resources were a strong focus for Vanport's outreach and promotion, as demonstrated in this film, "A College Comes to Housing."
