  • Editor’s Introduction
    • Abstract: The half-dozen offerings in this issue of the JHCY can be sliced a number of ways—like almost any other issue of this proudly varied and interdisciplinary journal. But perhaps the most effective approach is to think of them as a trio of paired pieces. The object lesson focuses on home front concerns and pop culture representations of the Second World War through a comic strip drawn by a Nebraska boy, while one of the essays examines the ambivalent interpretations of children and youth that emerged from the London Blitz early in the war. A second set of essays addresses American children on both sides of the footlights during the long nineteenth century, as consumers of entertainment and as providers. In each case ... Read More

  • A Nebraska Boy’s Comic Strip Narrative of World War II
    • Abstract: How might a kid from the rural Midwest imagine war in the 1940s? One unusual source for answering this question is an illustrated history of the Second World War in the Pacific, drawn by a thirteen-year-old Nebraskan, with “Toads” and “Frogs” replacing human fighters (figure 1).These armed amphibians are not cute, Disney-style characters. Decades before Art Spiegelman’s Maus, these stories were intense and darkly funny. Their deadly adversaries deployed modern weapons and were portrayed in a style familiar to audiences of 1940s war movies and readers of wartime comics.The artist, James “Jimmy” Kugler, lived in Lexington, Nebraska, a railroad hub and county seat of about 3600, surrounded by crops and feedlots.1 ...

  • An Epoch of Child Spectators in Early US Theatre
    • Abstract: As a significant but often overlooked cultural institution, theater supplies a communal yet ephemeral space in which actors perform dramatic material for spectators who complete the circle of interpretative and emotional reception. Yet as Steven Mintz prefaces, “Children are rarely obvious historical actors,” and, in a literal sense, even rarer still as not-so-obvious spectators who helped shape the very cultural formations of US theater. As I first explicated some years ago, early US theater was not categorized by the ages of its spectators but by British laws of legitimate literary dramas and non-legitimate forms of music and dance entertainments that included adapted nursery tales. Contrary to Mark Twain’s ... Read More

  • Wild West Children: Performing the Frontier
    • Abstract: In the second half of the nineteenth century, Buffalo Bill’s Wild West offered a type of spectacle like no other. Building on the success of impresarios like P. T. Barnum, William “Buffalo Bill” Cody and his partners staged a mass entertainment that drew millions of fans to its bleachers, touring relentlessly across North America and much of Europe. Like Barnum’s museum or the traveling circuses of Richard Bailey and Adam Forepaugh, Cody’s show was a novel form of early popular culture. Unlike most popular entertainments of the time, Buffalo Bill’s Wild West presented an explicit narrative of national progress. Launched in 1883 and running into the first decade of the twentieth century, Buffalo Bill’s Wild West ... Read More

  • “A Depraved Class”: Regulating Juvenile Delinquency through
           Legislation in Colonial Jamaica 1881-1904
    • Abstract: The Industrial Schools Act of 1857 and its subsequent amendments constituted the first serious legislation dealing with Jamaican children who appeared before the courts. This law established reformatories and industrial schools as the ideal institutions to care for children between the ages of five and sixteen years found begging, orphaned and abandoned, or wandering in public without evidence of familial and community support. Throughout the nineteenth century, other Caribbean territories such as Antigua, Barbados, and British Guiana also opened similar institutions to institutionalize juveniles brought before the courts as an alternative to incarceration.1Scholars who focus on the industrial schools in the ...

  • Heroes or hooligans?: Children in English War-Scarred Landscapes
           1940-1953
    • Abstract: In World War II, Britain’s “plastic, impressionable, imitative children, mirrors of every breath of national trouble,” were seen as crucial to national survival.1 Within the first few weeks of war, three million children were evacuated from London and coastal areas, all children were equipped with child-sized gasmasks, and schools instituted air raid precaution drills and created shelters. Children’s psychological and social well-being were also seen as central to the maintenance of civilian morale. Allied countries were particularly concerned with children as an indicator of future democracy, since it was believed that Hitler’s success lay in his recruitment of youths who had suffered as a consequence of World War ...

  • “She doesn’t look like a child”: Girls and Age of Consent
           Regulations in Austria (1950-1970)
    • Abstract: As jurists have argued since the late nineteenth century, the aim of age of consent regulations is to protect children “against the lust of raw brutes.”1 Yet various designations of the point before which girls and boys were in need of special protection have been contested. Beginning in the late nineteenth century, an intense debate concerning an adequate age of consent began to gain widespread attention. Numerous countries gradually increased the age of consent to fifteen, sixteen, and even eighteen years, often under pressure from women’s and child protection organizations. As historians of childhood have outlined, age of consent regulations have proven to be crucial for conceptualizing childhood. In the modern ... Read More

  • A Global History of Child Death: Mortality, Burial, and Parental Attitudes
           by Amy J. Catalano (review)
    • Abstract: In the past decade, historians have published important—often lengthy—new books on death, several of which extend beyond individual national contexts: Peter Stearns’s Revolutions in Sorrow: The American Experience of Death in Global Perspective (2007); Erik Seeman’s Death in the New World: Cross-Cultural Encounters, 1492–1800 (2010); and Thomas Laqueur’s The Work of the Dead: A Cultural History of Mortal Remains (2015). These and other national histories by Drew Gilpin Faust, Pat Jalland, and Julie-Marie Strange, among others, mark a renewed interest in death studies, but, like Philippe Ariès’s classic The Hour of Our Death (1981), tend not to concentrate primarily on the particular issues related to child ...

  • Tending the Student Body: Youth, Health, and the Modern University by
           Catherine Gidney (review)
    • Abstract: Today’s college students are accustomed to having their institutions take care of their physical and mental health needs. Fancy gyms have even become recruitment tools for elite institutions competing for fitness-conscious students. Tending the Student Body traces the creation of health programs at Canadian universities back to the early twentieth century. Gidney argues that concerns about the physical and moral health of college students “led to the creation of new sites through which administrators could exert their moral vision of the university and shape the student body” (9). Although other historians have examined the relationship between higher education and middle-class youth formation in Canada, Gidney is ... Read More

           Self-Determination: American Indian Education in Chicago, 1952–2006 by
           John L. Laukaitis (review)
    • Abstract: After an almost decade-long slowdown, the literature on Indian education is gaining momentum again. During the 1990s, scholars began telling the stories of Indian boarding schools that aimed to erase Indigenous languages and cultures and assimilate Native people into the broader body politic of the United States. Robert Trennert and David Wallace Adams elucidated the design of the schools, while K. Tsianina Lomawaima, Brenda Child, and others highlighted how Native students and communities endured boarding school experiences and protected the Native languages and cultures that the schools aimed to erase. Almost as quickly as the literature began to flourish, it went quiet again.A new group of scholars is pushing ... Read More

  • Youth and Sexuality in the Twentieth-Century United States by John C.
           Spurlock (review)
    • Abstract: Youth and Sexuality is a concise, argument-driven, and highly accessible synthesis of overlapping research in the histories of sexuality, youth, and social science. Framing each chapter are original primary source narratives that illuminate young people’s perspectives on their own lives and on sexual culture more broadly.Spurlock argues that a major transformation in the worlds of young people took place in the early twentieth century with the shift from a life dominated by family relationships and same-sex friendship to one driven by heterosexual socialization (2). For a few decades, working-class and then middle-class youth embraced the public ritual of the “date,” which expanded opportunities for sexual play and ... Read More

  • Bad Girls: Young Women, Sex, and Rebellion before the Sixties by Amanda H.
           Littauer (review)
    • Abstract: This engrossing study combines five accounts of “rebellious” young women and girls who navigated, adapted, and confronted conflicting moral messages and efforts to regulate sexual behavior amidst changing American sexual codes between World War II and the end of the 1950s. Focusing on diverse women and a range of expert voices, Littauer shows how individuals experienced and challenged attempts to contain their sexual choices. Through unorganized actions, youthful female sexual agency exposed deep contradictions between prescription and practice, and helped propel America towards what John D’Emilio and Estelle Freedman termed “sexual liberalism.”Bad Girls connects the war and postwar period to early ...

  • Frank Merriwell and the Fiction of All-American Boyhood: The Progressive
           Era Creation of the Schoolboy Sports Story by Ryan K. Anderson (review)
    • Abstract: In an article for North American Review in February of 1889, juvenile novelist J. T. Trowbridge asserted a prevailing opinion of the time: “The man is an enlightened being, the boy is a barbarian.” And yet, he concluded, “With all his failings, which are many and manifest, he has courage, gayety, endurance, readiness of wit and potency of will. Give direction to these forces, deepen his conscience and elevate his point of view, and the future of the American boy, the future of America itself, is secure.” Trowbridge articulates an ideology that would develop over the next three decades through the work of psychologists, youth organizers, educators, writers, and politicians—a cohort so well defined they became known ...

  • Shaping the New Man: Youth Training Regimes in Fascist Italy and Nazi
           Germany by Alessio Ponzio (review)
    • Abstract: By the turn of the twentieth century, youth emerged as a new social category widely recognized as having enormous political potential. With Shaping the New Man, Alessio Ponzio explores how the Opera Nazionale Balilla (ONB), its successor the Gioventù Italiana del Littorio (GIL), and the Hitler Youth transformed the values of youngsters to secure the future for their totalitarian regimes. Above all, Ponzio’s focus is on the training of Fascist and Nazi youth leaders. As both a comparative and transnational study, the work contrasts the Italian and German youth training regimes and charts how they cooperated and competed with each other from the 1920s through the end of the war.Ponzio argues that “Fascist and ...

  • Childhood and Nineteenth-Century American Theatre: The Work of the Marsh
           Troupe of Juvenile Actors by Shauna Vey (review)
    • Abstract: Shauna Vey’s Childhood and Nineteenth-Century American Theatre is a fascinating history of the Marsh Troupe of Juvenile Comedians. This company of approximately thirty children toured from 1855 until 1863 performing popular plays for adult audiences. Vey impressively pieces together their activities to illuminate the economic, staging, and touring practices common to many troupes and the experiences of children in mid-nineteenth-century America. She participates in the recent scholarly trend to uncover the experiences of children through empirical and archival research to interrogate ahistorical assumptions. Vey’s book is a welcome addition to this field. She does recover some of the “lost voices” and experiences ... Read More

  • Childhood and Colonial Modernity in Egypt by Heidi Morrison (review)
    • Abstract: Childhood studies, as embodied in three decades of the New Social Studies of Childhood (NSSC), has finally arrived to colonial Egypt. Heidi Morrison’s well-researched and accessible volume, Childhood and Colonial Modernity in Egypt, is based on the premise that childhood is a legitimate and vital category of historical analysis and that children constitute “active historical agents” (8). Morrison belabors the point that attention to children’s agency should not be equated with a linear approach to modernity, nor with supporting the notion that Western middle-class childhood constitutes the model for global childhood. Rather, this work situates children’s lives and agency within the local frame of Egypt and in so ... Read More

  • The 4-H Harvest: Sexuality and the State in Rural America by Gabriel N.
           Rosenberg (review)
    • Abstract: Gabriel Rosenberg’s study of the origins and development of 4-H, the largest and best-known youth-serving organization in America, firmly embeds the federal government within the heart of modern agrarian life. While readers may already be familiar with the ways that the federal government insinuated itself into the American landscape through Progressive Era conservation and New Deal agricultural policies, this study explains how the 4-H youth program also provided the federal government a conduit to family farms, served to condition American youth to partner with government programs, and “functioned as a mode of governance implemented through the bodies of participating children” (3). Grounded in research from ... Read More

  • Coin-Operated Americans: Rebooting Boyhood at the Video Game Arcade by
           Carly A. Kocurek (review)
    • Abstract: When asked to picture the “typical” video gamer, an image of a white, middle-class youth absorbed in play can be difficult to dislodge. This stereotypical gamer is almost invariably male, despite current research that suggests that women and girls constitute approximately half of gamers. This persistent conception of video gaming as a male-dominated arena creates a cycle in which the overwhelmingly male industry envisions a male audience, perpetuating the gender disparity.Kocurek’s Coin-Operated Americans examines how video games came to be popularly understood as a young man’s realm, focusing on the burgeoning popular, consumer, and trade cultures that developed around the arcade before the industry crash in ...

  • Childhood, Youth and Emotions in Modern History: National, Colonial and
           Global Perspectives ed. by Stephanie Olsen (review)
    • Abstract: Childhood, Youth and Emotions in Modern History is an edited volume seeking new vantage points from which to explore the history of childhood in the modern era. Most of its twelve chapters take a global and, when possible, transnational perspective, and all draw on the growing body of research in the history of emotions. The result is a rich history describing a world in which the notion of childhood, and the emotions associated with it, were dependent on cultural and temporal contingencies. The first two chapters, written by Karen Vallgårda, Kristine Alexander, and Stephanie Olsen, are dedicated to theoretical discussions meant to unify the distinct histories of the book. In chapter 3, Ishita Pande explores the ... Read More

  • Child Labor in the British Victorian Entertainment Industry, 1875–1914
           by Dyan Colclough (review)
    • Abstract: Child Labor in the British Victorian Entertainment Industry, 1875–1914, is a nuanced exploration of the tangle of economics, politics, philanthropy, social policy, entrepreneurship, gender, class, and competing visions of morality that swirled around Victorian stage children. Going beyond the standard players and obvious themes, Dyan Colclough sorts out factions and recovers viewpoints of constituent groups often overlooked. The reader emerges with a vision of the breadth and utility of children’s contribution to the theater industry, how it was maintained, why it receded, and what issues remained in the early decades of the twentieth century. (This reviewer is mentioned in the acknowledgements and the ... Read More
