Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study is to educate adults and later generations on the experience of women of the Navy who worked behind the scenes in World War II and helped win the war. The efforts and experiences of these pioneering women will be lost at a rate of 1,700 veterans each day (American Folklife Center 2002) leaving only the macroscalar documentary material and microscalar oral history interviews largely provided here as their only legacy. In coordination with the Veterans History Project and WAVES National, this thesis presents an opportunity for scholars as well as the general public to participate in preserving the women's military voice for the benefit of future generations. Through a macroscale study of the documented history, plus a microscale life history interview of a WAVE, and contextual interviews with a military man and nonmilitary woman from the time period, a multiscalar anthropology investigation has been conducted and recorded on these pages in a contribution to the discipline of Anthropology as well as the present and future generations of Americans in their nation's historic trust.
