dc.description.abstractThe post World War II period that began in the late 1940’s and ended in the mid 1960’s has been lauded as the realization of the "American Dream" for the average American, and blamed for all of the ills plaguing citizens and local governments due to sprawl. The central figure in both situations is the post war house. This work examines the economic, social and governmental influences that guided the design and construction of these houses. The examination is focused on the vernacular house type that evolved and referred to as Minimal Traditional Cottage. Recommendations are based on the analysis of the influences and their impact on preservation of these post war houses.
