Abstract
Dover, Delaware at mid-century was a city proud of its colonial heritage, interested mainly in preserving its quiet reserved way of life, its historical "buildings and its tree lined-streets. In 1949, Dover was reported as being "a calm unhurried city of homes;" a city "not interested in industrial payrolls." As the State capitol and the retail trade center of the surrounding agricultural counties, Dover had almost doubled its population in the first half of the twentieth century. Although this rate of growth could hardly be considered spectacular, it was one which seemed to satisfy a majority of the local citizenry.
