Rosie the Riveter Oral Histories Wanted

March 21 is National Rosie the Riveter Day established by the American Rosie the Riveter Association founded in 1998.  Their website is:  https://rosietheriveter.net/. To help celebrate the contributions made by thousands of American women during World War II, and to mark Women’s History Month, the St. Louis County Historical Society is gathering oral histories from women who were ‘Rosies.’  If you have a story to share, please contact Pippi Mayfield, Veterans Memorial Hall Program Assistant, pippi@thehistorypeople.org.
