Identifier:
2015.24.2
Description:
A professional 35mm film entitled "Michigan Victory Gardens Urged to Store Food."  The film is sponsored by the Michigan Department of Civil Defense and the titles contain the names:

Governor Harry F. Kelly, Chairman Michigan War Council
Captain Donald S. Leonard, Director of Civil Defense

The film itself depicts a group of people growing a "victory" garden to support the war effort during World War II.  Films from the 1940s are comparitively rare, and this particular film does not appear to have been digitized or to be part of any other cataloged public collections.  Its historical significance is derived from the fact that it demonstrates how World War II affected all Americans, including civilians at home.  Supporting the war effort was something everyone could contribute to, and there were many government programs to get people to do so.
