Q-C Times 'Big Story': 100th Anniversary of Government Housing Project

City of Rock Island

For this week's Big Story in the Quad-City Times, reporter Alma Gaul takes a look at the 1918 Government Housing Project. She reports it was the first-ever effort by the federal government to provide military housing to civilians. Those civilians were flooding into factories for the war effort of World War One.

You can read Gaul's story in the Sunday edition of the Times, and on the newspaper's website.
