Starting off…

This semester I will taking HIST 328, a class focused on US Women’s history since 1870. One of my main tasks during this semester will be to take a deeper look into the lives of female students at Mary Washington College during the 1940s. Researching and understanding the life and experiences of a 1940s Eagle will require not only looking at primary and secondary sources directly related to the college, but it will also necessitate the study of events and factors that helped define life in the United States outside of Mary Washington. This site will help document the research I do this semester. Enjoy!
