Rosie the Riveter and Her Latchkey Children: What Americans Can Learn about Child Day Care from the Second World War.
Tuttle, William M., Jr.
Child Welfare, v74 n1 p92-114 Jan-Feb 1995
Suggests that concern for "latchkey" children during World War II was hyperbolic. Examines the variety of successful solutions parents devised for child day care: (1) day care arrangements made by families themselves; (2) Lanham Act child day care centers; (3) centers operated by private industry; and (4) the very successful Extended School Services for school-age children.
