Synopsis

Sweetheart and Mother military pillow covers provide a point of departure for the study of World War I and II and the years of Civilian Conservation Corps camps of the twentieth century. Essentially, these important and often charming military collectibles have been overlooked in the past. This book offers invaluable information about individual bases and camps and distinguished military leaders as well as specific historical events. Through detailed captions and text that accompany 247 images, the reader will find meaningful connections to history at every turn. This book will be of great interest to textile enthusiasts, collectors of military artifacts, museums and students and teachers of history. The author discusses the types of fibers used to create these items, the names of their manufacturers, and origins of terms such as Doughboy. Another fascinating part of some of the pillow covers is their poetry, which is offered, in its entirety. This one-of-a-kind landmark study of these objects of material culture will continue to be a valued resource in years to come.
