Like many American towns, Geneva changed dramatically in the mid-20th century. Geneva: 1940-1970 examines events that influenced the city, among them the influx of sailors and workers at the nearby Sampson Naval Training Station during World War II and the construction of the Routes 5 and 20 bypass in the 1950s. Many factories ceased operation during this time, and downtown businesses began feeling pressure from a new shopping plaza and stores on the edge of town. The book also captures the social life of the community and notable people who visited Geneva, such as Bobby Kennedy and Jane Russell, and those who grew up here, such as legendary jazz bassist Scott LaFaro.
