   ISSN (Print) 1939-6724 - ISSN (Online) 1941-3599
   Published by Project MUSE Homepage  [294 journals]
  • Editor's Introduction
    • Abstract: This issue completes the tenth volume of the Journal of the History of Childhood and Youth. We're still a young journal, of course, but this is nevertheless a notable achievement. Publishing a journal was a dream of the founders of the Society for the History of Children and Youth from its earliest days, both at the 2000 meeting in Baltimore, where many of the original members took the first steps to organize, and a year later at the first official SHCY conference at Marquette University, where a set of bylaws was adopted and officers were elected. The journal would not have been possible without the hard work and vision of the founding editors: Brian Bunk, Laura Lovett, Karen Sánchez-Eppler, and Martha Saxon (Jon ... Read More

  • Yearbooks Redux: "The Kitten"
    • Abstract: "There is a great deal to be learned about youth culture, both within and outside of the school, from the seemingly simple high school yearbook. … Yearbooks hold up a mirror to the students, their community, and their perceptions of the larger world. Few sources are written by and for young people in the same way as the high school yearbook."1Last issue's object lesson by Pamela Riney-Kehrberg showed how the 1980s farm crisis rippled through the yearbook produced by the students of Harlan Community High School in Iowa.I want to follow up that fascinating object lesson with a very personal object lesson of my own. Last Christmas, while going through a box of family ephemera, my sister Jane and I came across a ... Read More

  • "A Sick Child Deserves Its Rights": Law, Religion, And Children's Medical
           Care In The United States, 1870–1910
    • Abstract: In October 1902, seven-year-old Esther Quimby died of diphtheria in Westchester County, New York. Sadly, Esther's untimely passing did not mark an unusual event at a time when diphtheria accounted for 14 percent of all deaths of persons between five and fourteen years of age in the United States. But her case took on historical significance when John and Georgianna Quimby found themselves among the first American parents to be criminally prosecuted for the medical neglect of their child. After a coroner ruled Esther died of "diphtheria and Christian Science neglect," a grand jury indicted her parents, along with a religious healer who had attended the girl, with second-degree manslaughter. The Quimbys argued that ... Read More

  • Norms and Practices Of Children's Diets in Brussels Hospitals,
           1830–1914
    • Abstract: In the highly controlled hospital of the nineteenth century, rules organized daily life, among which were extremely strict instructions about the patients' diet. In the 1830s in Brussels general hospitals, for example, detailed rules regulated the quantity and distribution of food for all patients. In 1859, however, a new instruction was introduced that showed some indulgence with children: it noted that it was not necessary to take back the food that was not eaten immediately after it had been served, unlike the rule pertaining to adults. Where did such a consideration come from' That question is the starting point of this essay, which studies children's food as part of demographic, medical, political, and ... Read More

  • Politics Is Not for Children: Student Activism and State Repression in
           Liberia, 1944–1990
    • Abstract: In 1822, the first group of freed slaves from the United States arrived on the Malaquette Coast, which they named Liberia.1 The arrival of settlers, in particular free-born settlers from the United States, marked the beginning of a tumultuous era in Liberia's history—especially for the sixteen indigenous ethnic groups that already inhabited the region. While works have been written about the impact of the socioeconomic and political policies implemented by settlers in Liberia on the indigenous population, a major void still exists in the historiography: namely, the ways in which the encounter between the two cultures, that of the indigenes, on the one hand, and that of the settlers, on the other hand, impacted ...

    • Abstract: Sam Silver was in his mid-forties and working as a low-level agent for a Chicago firm in October 1926 when he saw in the newspapers that Thomas Mott Osborne, the heir to an industrial fortune and internationally recognized authority on prison reform, had collapsed and died in the streets of his home-town of Auburn, New York. Silver read this item with alarm. He had come to know Osborne in the summer of 1897 when the Children's Aid Society of New York had sent him, an unruly sixteen-year-old from New York City's Lower East Side, to the George Junior Republic, an innovative reform program for "bad" boys and girls from the city's tenement neighborhoods. The Republic was founded by William R. George in 1895 in the ... Read More

  • "We Should Live Like One World": White Children Write About Race and
           Brotherhood in Letters to Harry S. Truman
    • Abstract: When President Harry S. Truman sent Congress a ten-point civil rights program on February 2, 1948, American children took notice. Truman's legislative proposal included several reforms to the United States' political and legal systems, including federal protection for citizens from lynching, the elimination of barriers against voting rights, and a "reconsideration" of segregated public institutions. Truman's motives for presenting this sweeping legislative program—which had almost no hope of getting passed—are less important here than how American children reacted to the message. Children discussed the plan amongst themselves and with the adults in their lives, especially their teachers. Truman's public challenge ... Read More

  • "What My Generation Makes of America": American Youth Citizenship, Civil
           Rights Allies, and 1960s Black Freedom Struggle
    • Abstract: I am so disappointed and angry at our country for the way Negroes are treated," fifteen-year-old Cheryl Dragotto, a white high school student from New York Mills, passionately declared in a neatly handwritten and carefully crafted note addressed to civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. on March 25, 1965. In her letter, Cheryl expressed her disappointment at national leaders' failure to uphold American democracy. Four days earlier, civil rights leaders, local activists, thousands of other US citizens, and even foreigners had embarked on a fifty-mile voting rights march from Selma, Alabama, to Montgomery. Dragotto, who observed these events in Alabama from afar, claimed, "I would give up everything I have to ... Read More

  • On the Cusp: The Yale College Class of 1960 and a World on the Verge of
           Change by Daniel Horowitz (review)
    • Abstract: As a historian with an interest in the history of masculinity and higher education, I came to Daniel Horowitz's On the Cusp with a natural fascination with Yale, both as a preeminent institution and as a special seat in the formation of an ideal manhood that influenced the nation in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The continued impact of the ideal "Yale Man" figures prominently in Horowitz's memory as well, if more as a model to rebel against. Horowitz seeks to find some insight into how family, education, and the Yale experience factored into the development of a class sitting in between the staid conformity of the 1950s and the rebellion of the 1960s. Many might first cast a skeptical eye ... Read More

  • Prep School Cowboys: Ranch Schools in the American West by Melissa
           Bingmann (review)
    • Abstract: Melissa Bingmann's study of ranch schools in the twentieth-century American West opens a unique window into several intersecting fields of study in the US West: tourism, education, and childhood studies. The author defines ranch schools as "private, nonsectarian boarding schools that offered the benefits of an 'authentic' western experience and catered to the elite of the Atlantic Seaboard and Midwest" (xv). Through the establishment and proliferation of these schools in the 1920s, Bingmann analyzes the growth of Western tourism in the interwar years and interrogates the idea of the West as a colony of the Eastern elite. The wealthy families who sent their sons, and sometimes their daughters, to ranch schools ... Read More

  • Picturing Class: Lewis W. Hine Photographs Child Labor in New England by
           Robert Macieski (review)
    • Abstract: Picturing Class: Lewis W. Hine Photographs Child Labor in New England adds depth and texture to the already substantial scholarship about the life and work of photographer Lewis Wickes Hine (1874–1940). The photographs that Hine made of child laborers during the first decades of the twentieth century powerfully shaped the image of the working class in the American imagination. But his photographs were more than iconic images. Hine's portraits of children employed in mills, mines, factories, and city streets played an essential role in the child labor reform movement that brought many abuses to an end.In Picturing Class, Robert Macieski joins scholars such as Alan Trachtenberg, Maren Stange, George Dimock, and Kate ...

  • Black Power in the Bluff City: African American Youth and Student Activism
           in Memphis, 1965–1975 by Shirletta J. Kinchen (review)
    • Abstract: Black Power in the Bluff City is a timely book that portrays how the long struggle for freedom is complicated by the sociopolitical context and the actors involved. Those of us who study social movements, especially during the early to late twentieth century, know that places and people greatly influence how we understand the civil rights and Black Power movements. Unfortunately, there are instances in which the narrative about a place and the people who occupy that space can become shallow. A good example of this occurring is Memphis, Tennessee. Within the historical literature of the civil rights movement, the significance of Memphis is that beloved civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., visited in ... Read More

  • Courtrooms and Classrooms: A Legal History of College Access, 1860–1960
           by Scott M. Gelber (review)
    • Abstract: In Courtrooms and Classrooms, Scott Gelber offers a nuanced account of the history of "academic deference," that is, the tendency of courts to defer to the autonomy and expertise of colleges and universities. Pushing back against legal scholars and historians who have assumed complete deference to institutions of higher education existed before the turbulent 1960s upended the system, Gelber argues that academic deference was a "fluid concept" that only dominated judicial rulings for a short period of time in the early twentieth century (3). Using state and federal court cases regarding college admission, expulsion, and tuition payment, Gelber identifies three distinct periods in the ways in which courts adjudicated ... Read More

  • Modern Manhood and the Boy Scouts of America: Citizenship, Race, and the
           Environment, 1910–1930 by Benjamin René Jordan (review)
    • Abstract: The history of the Boy Scout movement, in the United States and globally, has been the subject of numerous academic studies over the past several decades, and Benjamin René Jordan's 2016 book Modern Manhood and the Boy Scouts of America adds and responds to this body of literature in several notable ways. While demonstrating how American Scout leaders differentiated their organization from British-based Scouting (by downplaying militarism and frontier imagery, for example), Jordan argues that between 1910 and 1930, the BSA began to promote a new and relatively inclusive vision of modern masculinity that emphasized corporate loyalty, service-based and apolitical citizenship, scientific efficiency, and the ...

  • Reading Children: Literacy, Property, and the Dilemmas of Childhood in
           Nineteenth-Century America by Patricia Crain (review)
    • Abstract: Patricia Crain's gorgeous new book unites childhood studies and book history, uncovering the entwined genealogies of children and literacy. Crain reveals how two key, mutually constitutive modern concepts, childhood and literacy, became equated in the cultural imagination. Indeed, Reading Children introduces the compelling claim that the "the so-called invention of childhood was also an invention of a new relation to books and reading" (1).Crain navigates an immense swath of cultural history, beginning in the eighteenth century and culminating in advertisements for Barnes and Noble's e-reader, the Nook. Commencing with the first chapter's striking analysis of The History of Little Goody Two-Shoes, Reading Children ... Read More

  • Progressive Mothers, Better Babies: Race, Public Health, and the State in
           Brazil, 1850–1845 by Okezi T. Otovo (review)
    • Abstract: In Bahia, a northeastern state of Brazil, the decades following emancipation saw the rise of reform campaigns led by physicians and politicians who wanted to reshape Brazil through an ideal of the modern nation that focused on improving the health of laborers. Reformists considered impoverished mothers to be agents of social change and saw their child-rearing practices as the cornerstone for transforming the country. Examining the Bahian contours of this movement, Okezi Otovo's Progressive Mothers, Better Babies investigates the origins and outcomes of the maternalist movement from the mid-nineteenth century to 1945, a historical period remarkable for the dismantling of slavery (1888), the institution of the First ...

  • The Freedom Schools: Student Activists in the Mississippi Civil Rights
           Movement by Jon N. Hale (review)
    • Abstract: Literacy and education historically constituted important channels to achieve black freedom before civil rights activists launched the 1964 Freedom Summer in Mississippi. Popular interpretations continue to fixate on Supreme Court victories such as Brown v. Board of Education and the process of desegregation. John Hale's Freedom Schools unearths a history of educational activism that underscores the contributions of young citizens against white supremacists' efforts to slow or limit progress toward equal education in Mississippi. Grounded in rich oral histories and archival documents, Hale argues, "Freedom Schools reflected a commitment to actively inculcate youth with a participatory notion of American ... Read More

  • Younger Than That Now: The Politics of Age in the 1960s by Holly V. Scott
           (review)
    • Abstract: Holly Scott begins her study of how youth served as a political identity during the 1960s by suggesting that there is "something distorted and ahistorical about our memory of youth radicalism and the 1960s" (3). In Scott's view, popular fascination with the generation gap and a pervasive assumption that 1960s radicals inevitably grew more conservative as they aged have perpetuated an inaccurate picture of the 1960s. This picture, she argues, risks dismissing the political convictions of young, 1960s activists as an immature, adolescent-like rebellion that the baby boom generation soon outgrew. Readers who are familiar with the historiography of the 1960s may recognize this as a familiar lament; scholars such as ... Read More

  • Soviet Street Children and the Second World War: Welfare and Social
           Control under Stalin By Olga Kucherenko (review)
    • Abstract: In Soviet Street Children and the Second World War, Olga Kucherenko offers a vivid account of the last major wave of besprizornost' (child abandonment and homelessness) in the Soviet Union. In the early 1920s, millions of besprizorniki (waifs, orphans, or street children) born of the successive crises of world war, civil war, and famine overwhelmed state institutions and ultimately derailed visionary efforts to transform them into the constructors of the communist future. In the 1930s, as studies including Dorena Caroli's L'enfance abandonnée et délinquante dans la Russie soviétique, 1917–1937 (2004) and Cathy A. Frierson and Semyon S. Vilensky's Children of the Gulag (2010) have shown, the actions of the Soviet ... Read More

  • Fantasies of Neglect: Imagining the Urban Child in American Film and
           Fiction by Pamela Robertson Wojcik (review)
    • Abstract: Fantasies of Neglect explores the shifting mythologies of childhood through film and literature in the twentieth century. Pamela Wojcik places the urban imaginary alongside the traditional rural "cult of rusticity" that frames much of children's literature. The more modern urban myths similarly evoke images of nostalgia for a more innocent and free time. The images of urban childhood she explores depend upon dual (and often contradictory) fantasies of neglect (usually by the mother) and freedom (especially special mobility) that derives from neglect. Drawing upon a wide range of scholars from history, literature, film studies, and critical theory, Wojcik situates her valuable work in a deep dialogue with critics ... Read More

  • Carlisle Indian Industrial School: Indigenous Histories, Memories, and
           Reclamations ed. by Jacqueline Fear-Segal and Susan D. Rose (review)
    • Abstract: In putting together their new book on the Carlisle Indian School, Jacqueline Fear-Segal and Susan D. Rose have created a framework to begin to heal the traumas that Carlisle and other Indian boarding schools left on Native peoples and to reverse the amnesia non-Native peoples in the United States do not know they have. The Carlisle Indian School was established in 1879 as a colonial and military response to convert American Indian children to Euroamerican ideals and practices; from its example, the Office of Indian Affairs set up similar schools for Native children both in and away from Indian Country. Though Carlisle did not last as long as many of its counterparts across the continental United States, it did—like ... Read More

  • Schooling in the Antebellum South: The Rise of Public and Private
           Education in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama by Sarah L. Hyde (review)
           
    • Abstract: Asserting that "one must jettison the historiographical bias that measures all academic progress in relation to the establishment of schools in Massachusetts," Sarah Hyde treats us to a long-due examination of white education in the antebellum South (170). Such a conceptual reorientation is fundamental to Hyde's central claim that education was valued and sought by Southern inhabitants during this period, a conclusion that has been obscured in critical comparisons of Northern and Southern educational achievement. Hyde's referenced body of literature further makes the point; the topic appears to have long ago fallen out of vogue under the presumption of Southern apathy toward education—there's nothing to see here ...

  • American Child Bride: A History of Minors and Marriage in the United
           States by Nicholas L. Syrett (review)
    • Abstract: In 2017, New Yorkers made a shocking discovery: children as young as fourteen could legally marry. "I don't think people even knew this," New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo told the New York Times. Governor Cuomo's paucity of historical knowledge could have been remedied if had he read Nicholas Syrett's brilliant new book, American Child Bride. Syrett provides a sweeping history of youthful brides from the colonial era to the present and simultaneously offers a trenchant critique of the institution of marriage itself. Despite numerous waves of reform, child marriage has been relatively common and relatively accepted throughout US history, a fact that evinces Americans' "great faith" in the "powers of marriage" (7). ...
