HISTORY

The motion picture The Life and Times of Rosie the Riveter was produced in about 1980 by Connie Field and Clarity Educational Productions. It consists of interviews with women who did war work during World War II. More than half of the interviewees in these videotapes are African American, including Frances Albrier, who also appears in the Schlesinger Library's Black Women Oral History Project. Only five "Rosies" appear in the final production: Lola Weixel, Margaret Wright, Lyn Childs, Gladys Belcher, and Wanita Allen.
