Growing American Rubber

Strategic Plants and the Politics of National Security

Author: Mark R Finlay

Page: 360

Growing American Rubber explores America's quest during tense decades of the twentieth century to identify a viable source of domestic rubber. Straddling international revolutions and world wars, this unique and well-researched history chronicles efforts of leaders in business, science, and government to sever American dependence on foreign suppliers. Mark Finlay plots out intersecting networks of actors including Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, prominent botanists, interned Japanese Americans, Haitian peasants, and ordinary citizensùall of whom contributed to this search for economic self-sufficiency. Challenging once-familiar boundaries between agriculture and industry and field and laboratory, Finlay also identifies an era in which perceived boundaries between natural and synthetic came under review. Although synthetic rubber emerged from World War II as one solution, the issue of ever-diminishing natural resources and the question of how to meet twenty-first-century consumer, military, and business demands lingers today.

"From Apopka to Zellwood, the histories of Orange County's communities tell the history of the county itself. The communities came first, some of them when the vast unknown region was still Mosquito County. county boundaries changed, but the communities grew and multiplied. A dozen incorporated cities, and equal number of populated unincorporated towns, and innumerable smaller places make up the Orange County of today. Historic Orange County tells the story of Orange County and its communities from the time the first Spanish explorers stepped ashore to its emergence as one of the world's favorite tourist destinations. Tracing its growth from colonial and territorial days through the Seminole Wars, the book examines Orange County's slow growth before the railroads solved its transportation dilemma, its rise to the top of the citrus industry in the early years of the twentieth century, and its population explosion during the Florida Land Boom of the 1920s. The book highlights the accomplishments of the people who created the communities that make up Orange County, from Aaron Jernigan and his brother Isaac, David Mizell, Judge Speer, and other early pioneers, cattleman Jacob Summerlin, citrus innovator Dr. P. Phillips, and aerospace manufacturer Glenn Martin, to Walt Disney. Nearly two hundred years of the county's past come alive in the words and pictures of Historic Orange County."--Page 4.
