By Matthew Lindaman
Matthew Lindaman, who chairs the Department of History at Winona State University, analyzes the Camp Dodger, the camp news-paper for Camp Dodge, a regional training center for the U.S. Army during World War I in Johnston, Iowa. He shows how the paper linked the soldiers and their civilian families and fostered the re-establishment of social ties for the soldiers.

By Nathaniel Otjen
Nathaniel Otjen, a doctoral student in Environmental Sci¬ences, Studies, and Policy at the Univer¬sity of Oregon, describes the process of creating a barrio in Iowa City for Mexican laborers on the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad between 1916 and 1936. He shows how the formation of the barrio reflected the intersecting interests of the railroad company, the Euro-American residents of Iowa City, and the Mexican workers themselves.
