The 1940s and 1950 were an era of wars, recovery, and material progress. There was a vast expansion of America’s suburbs as GIs returned home and built new lives for themselves. Author John Francis Smith was raised in those seismic times. During World War II, he lived with his mother and sister in temporary housing in Virginia while his father served in the Army. After the war, they returned to live in Irvington, a small village along the Hudson River north of New York City. Mr. Smith will tell some of his many stories about growing up in Irvington from his personal memoir “The Day I Shot a Squirrel”.
