Abstract:
Economic growth in Eastern North Carolina during the 1940s was credited largely to the war effort. Formerly an area of poverty, Eastern North Carolina profited from manufacturing and ship construction during the war era. The boost provided by war demands also led to developments in transportation and communication. Cities which experienced the most growth included Wilmington with over 100 contracts to build Liberty ships and Elizabeth City when it opened the largest Coast Guard air base in 1940.

Abstract:
Female marines increased in numbers during World War II. These trained women were not sent abroad to fight but remained at home. Women filled positions at home so men could be relieved of duties on American bases to free-up fighting men. The women were sent to Camp Lejeune to receive training. Afterwards these marines filled traditional female roles (stenographers, telephone operators, etc.) but also began to be placed as carpenters, painters, welders, and more masculine vocations.
