Fun Florida Factoid: West Palm Beach
Property values dropped dramatically in West Palm Beach and elsewhere during the Great Depression. However, there still was some progress in the city during the 1930s. Palm Beach Junior College (today’s Palm Beach Community College) became Florida’s first junior college when it opened in 1933. The new county airport, Morrison Field (present day Palm Beach International Airport), was dedicated in December 1936. It was named in honor of the late Grace Morrison who had spearheaded the drive to establish it.
By the end of the 1930s, dark, forbidding clouds loomed on the horizon as Europe went to war. When the military began expanding, the US War Department approved a plan to lease Morrison Field as an Army Air Corps base, and in 1942 the Army established the Air Transport Command there. This brought thousands of servicemen to West Palm Beach. Other civilian facilities in the area were used to support the war effort and to entertain troops.
