Dating, Dancing, and Riding in Cars: A Scrapbook Archive of Teen Culture in the 1930s
No Thumbnail Available
This digital archive is comprised of artifacts from a scrapbook created by my great-grandmother, Mary Jane Logan, during the years that she attended Appalachian State Teachers College (1933-1935) in North Carolina. A middle-class teen, Jane went to parties, attended school athletic events, dated around, rode in automobiles, and enjoyed hanging out with friends on campus, in the outdoors, and at the drugstore. Her social life exemplifies the new found freedom of teens in the 1930s who pushed back against the paternalistic control of parents and other authority figures. [opening paragraph]
