Childhood-Related Source Materials: Library Building Project

*apologies for cross-posting

Hello,

I am looking for primary source materials related to childhood studies in order to build a resource library for graduate students and instructors.

My name is Emily Slomski. I am a second year graduate student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln under the advisement of Dr. Will Thomas.

re: primary source materials related to childhood studies in order to build a resource library

What an admirable project!

Keep children's health/nutrition/pediatrics in mind as a topic and great source of artifacts that all ages can relate to.

Re: Dr. Mary Walker at Work On the Field

I actually devoted a chapter of my recent book to Walker's MoH saga, and noted that this text contains a few inaccuracies. The text claims that she was made "assistant surgeon in the regular army, which carried with it the rank of first lieutenant." Assistant surgeons did not hold that rank- they were purely contractors, and this was the subject of some longstanding legal opinions, which is why she later was stripped of her medal (the law strictly required that the recipient be a soldier).
