Abstract : This report presents the transcripts of oral history interviews conducted as part of an effort to document the construction and World War II-era operations of the Joliet Army Ammunition Plant (JAAP), near Wilmington, Illinois. This project was undertaken as part of a larger Legacy Resource Program demonstration project to assist small installations and to aid in the completion of mitigation efforts set up in a 1993 Programmatic Agreement among the Army Materiel Command, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, and Multiple State Historic Preservation Officers concerning a program to cease maintenance, excess, and dispose of particular properties. As part of the larger project to develop the national historic context of seven sample installations on a state and local level, the major focus of the project at JAAP was to document the impacts that the facility had on the state and local environments during the World War II period.
