"And I'm Tracy v. Wilson, we're talking today about Levi Strauss, and historians really historically interesting because it touches on a lot of important moments in US history. So he was an immigrant who ended up in a business that was impacted by an intern affected. The US civil war and American clothing culture. He has the story that's tied to the goldrush heels that vision for his adopted city of San Francisco that he worked really hard to achieve. So the future generations would benefit from it, and his life in many ways, is the story of the United States in the nineteenth century from the perspective of Jewish immigrant who became a captain of industry before we get into his story. I will make a confession. Which is that until fairly recently, probably five years ago, I thought Levi, Strauss were two different people that have been business together saying. So clearly I missed this in history class, because even though people wear Levi's and you'd call it Levi, Strauss. I didn't realize that was one person's proper name. So I grew up in North Carolina not all that far away from cone, mills, which is, who made the denim for Levi's five oh, one for. Two hundred years or something like this is a piece of history. That is like, I'm a little more speed it. I didn't have confusion about whether Levi Strauss for two people. It's not my proudest moment. But in my defense even though I am a clothes person. I don't think I owned a pair of jeans of any flavor from about nineteen eighty five until, like two years ago. That's just never been my things. So, that's, that's my excuse paltry. Though it may be that I've just never examined Levi, Strauss fit makes you feel better. I thought Hanna Barbera was one person. Oh now, that'd be funny, but now fellow Levi was born lube, Strauss on February twenty six eighteen twenty nine in Germany, has father her Strauss was a salesman who sold household, goods store, door, this mother's name was Rebecca Haas Strauss, and both she and her screw up in Franconia. It's an area in the north of modern day Bavaria, which was predominantly Jewish. Rebecca with her second wife, his first wife. Male Bowman Strauss had died at the age of thirty five leaving him with five children than her and Rebecca had two more children's gather a daughter, and then lib, and her Rebecca, and their seven children lived in a three room downstairs floor of a two story house. So this was a time when Bavaria's Yudin addict, or July was in effect that had started in eighteen teens in this law seemed as though it offered Jewish citizens the opportunity to pursue. A number of jobs that had once been forbidden to them. But in return, it also created really strict regulations for their lives among them marriage, an immigration of new Jews was severely limited all Jews had to be registered. They had to take German names. They could not own land, and even their language was codified. So all public records had to be kept in German. They cannot use Hebrew for those someone like her Strauss who traveled through the area, selling his wares, also served as messengers his community Connector's during this time. And in this profession, Kirsch was sort of exemptions from part of the you'd need it working as a peddler, which had been a traditional job for Jewish men in the area for a long time was no longer considered an acceptable career, but older, people like her who weren't able to pick up a new profession. We're allowed to keep doing it. Yeah, it was expected that they would just eventually die off. And so would that profession and all of the limitations of the eight eventually, inspired immigration, one of the marriage laws that really created a problem with only the eldest son of any Jewish household could get married. And so there were some work arounds, like, if nother son that was younger wanted to marry a widow that was acceptable, or if a couple had no children, wanted to give up the slot, there, Ellison would have had to another family, so they have two sons Mary, they could. But basically, this really limited the entire societal culture, because all of these young women could not get married. All of these young men could not get married.

And eighteen forty six Hirsch, died of tuberculosis Rebecca remarried, soon after two curses brother, who was a widower named Lipman, but Lipman died just a few weeks after the wedding was seventeen at that time. And see his sisters were still living at home. An immigration at this point was not easy. You couldn't just pick up and leave. The Bavarian government had to approve anyone who wished to leave the country. And it had to prove that, neither you nor anyone in your family had any sort of criminal record, and that you could afford to make the trip on March seventeenth eighteen forty seven Rebecca Strauss filed an immigration petition in which he stated that because she was a widow, she didn't have the financial support anymore.

There live was old enough to work and contribute to the family's finances. Once they are. Arrived, and for his part, live his own petition stating, quote, no members of my family will stay behind. I will share the faith that has been assigned to me with them in foreign lands. I this join my mother and her plea on June twenty six eighteen forty-seven Rebecca and her children, so love and his two sisters were approved for immigration, but they didn't leave immediately because Rebecca needed to make sure that the family that had gone on to New York had indeed made preparations for the three of them to arrive and live there. They finally made their way in the spring of eighteen forty eight although the specifics of their transatlantic passage aren't really documented, or known Jonas and Lewis Strauss. Libs brothers had both come dry goods merchants in the city, they'd open up shop at three ninety three and a half grand street. But by the time the family arrived, they had moved to a more lucrative location at two three and a half division street. They lived about the shop Jonas that also got married and started his own family. And at some point followed the example, that his siblings, had any changed his name to a more, Americanized version. This was not uncommon in the eighteen fifty cents as he is listed as Levi with a why he also started working in the family dry goods business while he was there. He learned English really quickly so that he could speak with business partners and customers. And he applied for us citizenship Justice his brothers had done before him. The Strauss's strike goods business was doing really well, they moved to another new location near union market in eighteen fifty one and their family. Business was growing and you opportunity was making self apparent across the country. As the California gold, rush foster new towns, new prosperity and need for dry goods. The Strauss brothers did not want to miss a chance to capitalize on this new market, but they also needed to keep their established New York business going. And so the youngest brother of the family was sent west five. Days after he took his oath of citizenship on January thirty first eighteen fifty three lip Strauss, who was now, going by Levi left New York for San Francisco aboard the US mail ship, Georgia, which was a steamer and the family had already loaded shipment of merchandise. Aboard another ship called the winged racer for Levi to take possession of once. He reached San Francisco. The clipper, winged racer was sailing down around the tip of South America, and then north to California leave. I would make the trip in less time, traveling through Panama was, of course before the Panama Canal was built. So he took the steamer Georgia to Panama, and then traveled across thin strip of the country to Panama City on the Pacific side got on another steamer. They're called the isthmus, and that was bound for San Francisco. He arrived in San Francisco on March thirteenth eighteen fifty three. This was considered a lot of people safer plan than trying to travel overland from New York to San Francisco because. People often do not survive that journey, or if they did get California. They got there in pretty sorry shape, this was a little bit of an easier. Boom. And the specifics of Levi's first days in San Francisco are also a known he would have needed to rent warehouse space for the goods that were coming in on the winged racer, and he would have needed to find lodgings for himself. He most likely had some letters of introduction to family connections that had already made that journey west. So it wasn't as though he just showed up and had to figure everything out by himself. He had some security net in place that merchandise that had been shipped showed up two weeks after Levi did on March thirtieth, unlike other merchants has a bid on merchandise that was shipped on spec. Once it got to the port at San Francisco Levi knew what was coming. He just had.

"Holly, fry Hello. And welcome to the podcast. I'm Holly fry and I'm Tracy v. Wilson we're talking today about Levi Strauss and historians really historically interesting because it touches on a lot of important moments in US history. So he was an immigrant who ended up in a business that was impacted by an intern affected, the US, civil war and American clothing culture. He has a story that's tied to the goldrush. He also had a vision for his adopted city of San Francisco that he worked really hard to achieve. So that future generations would benefit from it and his life. In many ways is the story of United States in the nineteenth century from the perspective of a Jewish immigrant who became a captain of industry before we get into story. I will make a confession which is that until fairly recently probably five years ago. Oh, I thought Levi Strauss were two different people that have been a business together. So clearly I missed this in history class because even though people wear Levi's, and you'd call it Levi Strauss, I didn't realize that was one person's proper name. So I grew up in North Carolina. Not all that far away from cone mills which is who made the denim for Levi's five for. Two hundred years or something. So like, this is a piece of history that is like, I'm a little more speech than I didn't have confusion about whether Levi Strauss. It's not my proudest moment. But in my defense, even though I am a clothes person. I don't think I owned a pair of jeans of any flavor from about nineteen eighty five until like two years ago. Like, that's just never been my things. So that's that's my excuse poultry, though, it may be that. I just never examined Levi Strauss fit makes you feel better. I thought Hanna Barbera was one person. Oh, no. That'd be funny. But no. So Levi was born loop Strauss on February twenty six eighteen twenty nine in Germany has father her Strauss was a salesman who sold household goods store door. This mother's name was Rebecca Haas Strauss. And both she and her screw up in Franconia. It's an area in the north of modern day Bavaria, which was predominantly Jewish. Rebecca was her. Second wife. His first wife made Bowman Strauss had died at the age of thirty five leaving him with five children. Then Hirsch and Rebecca had two more children together a daughter and then lube and Hirsch, Rebecca and their seven children lived in a three room downstairs floor of a two story house. So this was a time when Bavaria's udon addict or July was in effect that had started in the eighteen teens in this law seemed as though it offered Jewish citizens the opportunity to pursue. A number of jobs that had once been forbidden to them. But in return, it also created really strict regulations for their lives among them, marriage and immigration of new Jews was severely limited. All Jews had to be registered. They had to take German names, they could not own land. And even their language was codified. So all public records had to be kept in German. They cannot use Hebrew for those someone like her Strauss who traveled through the area selling his wares. Also served as messengers MS community connectors during this time, and in this profession curse was third of exempted from part of the you'd need it working as a peddler which had been a traditional job for Jewish men in the area for a long time was no longer considered an acceptable career. But older people like Hearst who weren't able to pick up a new profession. We're allowed to keep doing it. Yeah. It was expected that they would just eventually die off. And so would that profession and all of the limitations of the edict eventually inspired immigration, one of the marriage laws that really created? A problem was only the eldest son of any Jewish household could get married, and so there were some work arounds like if a nother son that was younger wanted to marry a widow that was acceptable. Or if a couple had no children wanted to give up the slot. Their eldest son would have had to another family. So they can have two sons Mary they could. But basically, this really limited the entire societal culture. Because all of these young women could not get married. All these young men could not get married. It was frustrating. So eventually they wanted to leave in eighteen thirty seven. There was a a group of eighteen people that left eighteen young people in two of loves older siblings were part of that they left Germany to make homes in London and New York. In nineteen forty and nineteen forty one to more of the stress. Children followed suit in eighteen forty six. I died of Turkey lacis, Rebecca remarried soon after two hearses brother who was a widower named Lipman, but Lipman died just a few weeks after the wedding live was seventeen at that time and see his sisters were still living at home an immigration at this point was not easy. You couldn't just pick up and leave the Varian government had to approve anyone who wished to leave the country, and you had to prove that neither you nor anyone in your family had any sort of criminal record. And that you could afford to make the trip on March seventeenth eighteen forty seven Rebecca Strauss filed an immigration petition in which she stated that because she was a widow. She didn't have the financial support anymore. She didn't know how she would provide for her youngest son, but she had children in the United States who can help her get settled there live was old enough to work and contribute to the family's finances. Once they are. Arrived and for his part Lou his own petition stating quote, no members of my family will stay behind. I will share the faith that has been assigned to me with them in foreign lands. I this join my mother and her plea on June twenty six eighteen forty-seven, Rebecca and her children. So love and his two sisters were approved for immigration, but they didn't leave immediately because Rebecca needed to make sure that the family that had gone on to New York had indeed made preparations for the three of them to arrive and live there. They finally made their way in the spring of eighteen forty eight although the specifics of their transatlantic passage aren't really documented or known Jonas and Lewis Strauss. Libs brothers had both become dry goods merchants in the city. They had opened up a shop at three ninety three and a half grand street. But by the time, the family arrived. They had moved to a more lucrative location at two three and a half division street. They lived above the shop Jonas said also gotten married and started his own family. And at some point love followed. The example that his siblings had any changed his name to a more Americanized version. This was not uncommon in in the eighteen fifty cents as he is listed as Levi with a why he also started working in the family dry goods business while he was there he learned English really quickly. So that he could speak with business partners and customers and he applied for us citizenship. Justice his brothers had done before him the stresses strike goods business was doing really well, they move to another new location near union market in eighteen fifty one. And as their family business was growing and the opportunity was making itself apparent across the country as the California gold rush foster new towns, new prosperity and a need for dry goods. The Strauss brothers did not want to miss a chance to capitalize on this new market, but they also needed to keep their established New York business going and so the youngest brother of the family was sent west five. Days after he took his oath of citizenship on January thirty first eighteen fifty three loop Strauss. Who was now going by Levi left New York for San Francisco aboard the US mail ship Georgia, which was a steamer and the family had already loaded shipment of merchandise aboard another ship would called the winged racer for Levi to take possession of once? He reached San Francisco the clipper winged racer was sailing down around the tip of South America and the north to California leave I would make the trip in less time traveling through Panama. This was of course, before the Panama Canal was built so he took the steamer Georgia to Panama and then traveled across thin strip of the country, Panama City on the Pacific side. It got on another steamer. They're called the isthmus. And that was bound for San Francisco. He arrived in San Francisco on March thirteenth eighteen fifty three. This was considered for a lot of people safer plan, then trying to travel overland from New York to San Francisco because. People often do not survive that journey or if they did get California. They got there in pretty sorry shape. This was a little bit of an easier. Boom. And the specifics of Levi's first days in San Francisco are also unknown. He would have needed to rent warehouse space for the goods that were coming in on the winged racer, and he would have needed to find lodgings for himself. He most likely had some letters of introduction to family connections that had already made that journey west. So it wasn't as though he just showed up and had to figure everything out by himself. He had some security net in place that merchandise that had been shipped showed up two weeks. After Levi did on March thirtieth. Unlike other merchants you had to bid on merchandise that shift on spec. Once it got to the port at San Francisco Levi knew what was coming. He just had to inspect it accept it. And then.

"In may nineteen fifty three an article appeared in fortune magazine, titled the hidden struggle for the H bomb. The story of Dr Oppenheimer's persistent campaign to reverse US military strategy the article written by an anonymous contributor claim that j Robert Oppenheimer was a member of traitorous conspiracy to undermine the very bomb program. He had worked to create the article referenced Oppenheimer's objections to the hydrogen bombs deployment and his criticisms of violent military policies while these stances could be attributed to Oppenheimer's long-held pacifism, the article suggested they were instead evidence of his anti American sentiments the anonymous author would later be identified as Charles Murphy in air force member along with Lewis, Strauss, the atomic energy commission head who had long, but it heads with often higher the article spur the atomic. Energy commission to immediately revoke Oppenheimer's security clearance and investigate his communist connections throughout the investigation. Oppenheimer maintained his innocence. When the hearing concluded on may twenty third nineteen fifty three the atomic energy commission determined that while Oppenheimer had not broken any laws. He had demonstrated quote, a serious disregard for the requirements of the security system, and quote, his security clearance, would not be reinstated. The investigation loss of security clearance, spelled the end of Oppenheimer's government career despite his world changing work on the atomic bomb. His legacy was now forever tainted Oppenheimer never won a Nobel prize much to the surprise end chagrin of his peers, he spent the last decade of his life teaching at Princeton and all this for his former political alliance with the communist party. He was never can. Victims of any crime. And his connection was espionage remains tenuous at best all considered I give this conspiracy theory. A two out of ten often Heimer may have had communist sympathies, but that doesn't oughta manically translate into a penchant for international espionage. Additionally, often Heimer was highly critical of the Soviet Union throughout his time with the Manhattan project. There was no evidence that Oppenheimer was aware of the espionage activities in Los Alamos or that he would have supported those activities. If in new about them after everything is name has been through. I think it's time to let Dr Oppenheimer rest in peace. Our next theory also begins with one of Oppenheimer's, major achievements. The first atomic bomb test in human history on July sixteenth, nineteen Forty-five dubbed, the trinity test the Manhattan project's I function bomb called the gadget exploded in an unpopulated stretch of the New Mexico desert three and a half years later in December nineteen forty eight airline crews reported seeing strange lights over the New Mexico sky these lights green glowing wreathed in fire traveled from east to west this brings us to conspiracy theory number to the development of atomic bombs was a major leap forward in human development, a push forward. So dramatic it drew the attention of extraterrestrials this theory holds that after the first atomic bomb test aliens initiated. Contact in order to either warn humanity of the dangers of atomic power or to keep our species in check before we could become an interplanetary threat, although sightings of unidentified flying, objects or UFO's date back prior to World War Two. A rash of UFO sightings occurred around Manhattan project locations during the nineteen forties and nineteen fifties..

"And as it was eventually revealed. Some of the most prolific Soviet spies were able to infiltrate Los Alamos under Oppenheimer's watch one of the most successful Soviet spies was Klaus Fuchs food was a German communist who immigrated to England in nineteen thirty three as a refugee from the Nazis while living in England. He studied physics in England's top universities while food was studying at Birmingham university. He accepted an assistant position with the British atomic bomb development program in nineteen forty two one of foods friends from the communist party connected him with Soviet handlers. So that folks could relate top secret information. About the bomb to the Soviet Union in nineteen forty three the United States government brought numerous British scientists including foods to the US to apply their expertise to the American bomb program Phuc joined the Manhattan project at its Los Alamos location where he worked under j Robert Oppenheimer's supervision after foo concluded his work with the Manhattan project. He returned to England where he worked on British efforts to develop a hydrogen bomb continuing to release secrets to his Soviet handlers. All the while flukes was instrumental in helping the Soviet Union build and test their own atomic bomb in nineteen forty nine that same year. British investigators finally identified Phuc says a spy and arrested him after his arrest. Phuc confessed and named his collaborators both in the UK and the US this led investigators to another Los Allah. Most base by named David Greenglass with the help of his sister and brother in law Ethel and Julius Rosenberg Greenglass also passed atomic bomb related documents along to the Soviet Union. Investigators suspected the existence of yet another spy at Los Alamos, but they were never able to identify him. It wasn't until years later that Theodore hall, another physicist based at Los Alamos would confess to relying atomic secrets to the Soviet Union. Besides the actual spies. Many of Heimer fellow engineers were either communists, former communists, or suspected communists. After World War Two ended in nineteen Forty-five the Manhattan project was restructured into a new program called the atomic energy commission. The head of the atomic energy commission was a man named Lewis Strauss who took a strong disliking towards Oppenheimer the exposure of multiple project, y employees as spies only confirmed Strauss's suspicions. Besides his tenuous connection foods little evidence existed to connect Oppenheimer with Soviet espionage. In fact, in nineteen forty three the FBI bugged, the home of Oppenheimer's friends, Steve Nelson, unknown Soviet spy in the recordings. They heard Nelson complain to his acquaintances about how secretive Oppenheimer was about his work. And how scrupulously he resisted Nelson's attempts to coax information out of him by all appearances Oppenheimer was never involved in any espionage. A few of his engineers may have been spies. But he wasn't personally responsible for vetting new hires. If anything the blame should fall in the military for slacking on their background checks. But coming up we'll see that all his apparent innocence wasn't enough to protect Oppenheimer from suspicion. There are lots of meal kit delivery companies out there. But.
