Allan G. Bogue, 1921-2016

It's with profound sadness that I note the passing of Allan G. Bogue, Frederick Jackson Turner Professor-Emeritus at the University of Wisconsin. He was an outstanding scholar and a kind and generous mentor. We will miss him greatly.

Mail-Order Brides


I am conducting research on mail-order brides and am looking for scholarly work on the topic.  So far, the only scholarly piece that I have found was Marcia Zug's Buying a Bride: An Engaging History of Mail-Order Matches.  I have come across other books regarding mail-order brides, but given spotty citations, I don't find them to be particularly reliable.  I have had success in finding information on picture brides (and am still open to more), but I am particularly interested in information on domestic mail-order brides.

Thank you for your help,
