Publications Disseminated by the U. S. Government During the Early 20th Century for the American Housewife: A Selected Bibliography

by Satterfield, Antoinette W.

Abstract (Summary)
This selective, annotated bibliography compiles documents made available by the U.S. Government to housewives during the first four decades of the 20th Century. Many of the publications aided the housewives in growing, preserving, and serving food to their families in the most nutritious and cost-effective manner. Other documents helped them in making important larger purchasing decisions, such as how to decide which winter coats or blankets to buy, all the while considering their family budget. This annotated bibliography presents a segment of America’s social history during the years known as the Progressive Era, the Great Depression, and World War I. The publications listed can all be found in the Federal Documents Collection in the Walter B. Davis Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
