This study examines the war work of those married women who chose to remain at home. Mothers and wives united into a battalion confronted with numerous challenges. The study of homemakers and their contributions is important to relate when such a significant number of married women participated. Invaluable information on Texas women has been gleaned from the files of the Texas Extension Service at Cushing Memorial Library, Texas A and M University. The Woman's Collection located at Texas Woman's University has been extensively explored to examine cookery books and women's magazines during the era as well as collections such as those of the Texas Federation of Women's Clubs and Texas State College for Women. The goal of this thesis is to recognize a large segment of women whose accomplishments have often been overlooked.
