Seeking Third Panelist: OAH 2020

We are looking for a third panelist to complete a panel on gender in the federal government for the 2020 OAH in Washington DC. One of the papers will examine the fate of the Children's Bureau and the women who worked there in the 1950s, and the second paper deals with appeals to female voters in presidential elections in the 1940s and 1950s. We welcome papers working on gender broadly understood, including LGBT history or studies of masculinity, within the government in any period since the Civil War.
