Fighting for Aluminum and for Itself:
The Bonneville Power Administration, 1939-1949
Harry Stein, Ph.D.

Smith Memorial Student Union, Room 328
Portland State University
1825 SW Broadway
From 1939 to 1949 the BPA fostered the aluminum industry in the Pacific
Northwest and thus secured the revenue and political support necessary for
its mission and its future. This is the story of the people, politics and
power of an organization that transformed the Columbia River and with it,
the region9s economy. Harry H. Stein is a public historian and recipient of
the 2006 CCRH James B. Castles Fellowship.
This event is sponsored by the Center for Columbia River History, Nohad A.
Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning, and PSU9s Friends of History.
