Sixty Eight Years Ago Today

Norman Rockwell’s iconic image of Rosie the Riveter graced the cover of The Saturday Evening Post.  Check out this fantastic article on the Berkeley Blog, “Norman Rockwell’s Rosie the Riveter and World War II in American Memory” by history Ph.D. candidate Samuel Redman.

Did you know that UC Berkeley has an ongoing oral history project to record and archive the stories of the Rosies who came to the Bay area to work during World War II ?
