#WomenOnWednesdays – ISU 1942-43

During World War II, everyone had to play their part to support the war effort, including Iowa State Students. Women all over campus stepped up and got involved in many ways. Perhaps related to the change in student population at the time, the contributions of female students were highlighted much more than usual in ISU yearbooks compiled during these years. Here are some of the contributions that were highlighted in the 1943 Bomb.
