SPICE course description: The first decade post World War One saw many changes in the ways Americans worked, lived, loved, thought, talked, and consumed than any other time before. We got the flu, alcohol was prohibited, women got the right to vote, and radios, TVs and cars became a normal part of our lives. There were eight new countries in the world and Fascism reared its head in Italy with Mussolini. The roaring twenties came to a crashing end in 1929 with the Great Depression, but hope was restored with the election of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Part One of this course will discuss all of these events and more that took place during the first part of one of the most important decades in our country’s history— the Fantastic Interim.

Facilitator: Rex Rehfeld has a B.S. from the University of CA and a J.D. from the University of MD. He has lectured on a variety of historical topics in many Lifelong Learning programs throughout the Baltimore area. Rex served in the Navy in WW II and in the Army during the Korean War and beyond. After leaving the service, Rex served as an investment counselor until his retirement in 2014.
