Dr. Frederick Bode, Professor Emeritus, Department of History, Concordia University



Frederick Bode's research centers on Hollywood during the 1930s as a predominantly working class neighborhood, where a significant proportion of the population was employed in the film industry- usually as extras, bit players, and technicians. It will explore the characteristics of the migrants who came to Hollywood, some of who hoped to pursue a career in the movies. He is currently completing an article that examines the economy and culture of lodging houses and residential hotels in Hollywood. Before retiring in 2013, he taught a number of courses on film in American history, including a graduate seminar on Hollywood and World War II.
