Video Description

The war was a fading memory as the US Navy turned over administration of the islands to Interior Department in 1951. Still, military uniforms and jeeps were everywhere to be seen. The people had returned to their land, rebuilt their homes, and resumed ordinary life in the years immediately following the war. The 1950s was a time for quiet rebuilding on a broader level–schools, hospitals, constabularies, businesses, and political systems. Routine was interrupted by an occasional visit by a US official. Nothing flashy was achieved, but a solid foundation was built for the rapid development of the 60s and 70s.
