Felton, Barbara J.
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v25 n1 p27-42 1987
Drew portraits of two cohorts of older adults from historical and sociological sources and tested hypotheses about cohort-specific values with data collected in 1957 and 1976. Results support view that adults born before 1900 were distinctive from other cohorts in that their happiness levels were closely linked with survival needs and firmly wedded to Protestant ethical values.
