Abstract

Lois A. Ferguson was a teacher at a Japanese-American relocation center in California during World War II; she and her husband endured treacherous dust storms and poor living quarters to provide education to their young Japanese charges. Kay Watson's husband fought in Europe while Kay worked on a secret government effort known as the Manhattan Project. Pauline Parker, who also endured the war, has gathered the personal stories of such women as marines and government workers as well as single mothers whose husbands had gone off to fight.
