History Hounds Keep ’Em Fighting

On December 7, 1941, a military strike at Pearl Harbor led the United States into World War II. In Michigan, the Chris-Craft Corporation quickly transitioned from building pleasure boats to constructing landing craft for the war effort. Join the speaker to learn more about Chris-Craft’s role in America’s “Arsenal of Democracy.”
