LaRossa, Ralph; Reitzes, Donald C.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v57 n1 p223-29 Feb 1995
Analyzes 256 letters written by middle-class fathers and mothers to nationally known educator Angelo Patri to illustrate the degree to which perceptions of father involvement in the 1920s-30s varied according to gender. Suggests the difference in father involvement during the 20th century is not as sharp as some suppose. (Author/JPS)
