Behördeninfo für die amerikanische Hausfrau
Eine Auswahlbibliographie von "Publications Disseminated by the U. S. Government During the Early 20th Century for the American Housewife" hat Antoinette W. Satterfield, Government Resources Librarian in der Bibliothek der Kansas State University, 2005 für ihre Master Thesis an der School of Information and Library Science zusammengestellt: "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".
