Abstract: The 1900 generation became adults in the prosperous 1920s and then lived through the Great Depression and World War II, all the while navigating work and family ideals and realities. Rarely before studied, the 1900 generation reveals important insights into the roots of gendered work-family tensions. Their pioneering experiences forged through a massive economic downturn and war have much to suggest about families and work today, especially given how life-altering the pandemic has been. Join the authors of Living on the Edge: An American Generation’s Journey through the Twentieth Century for a conversation about their findings.
