Katharine Phillips: Rosie the Riveter
Phillips worked at the government nursery school for children of the women who labored at the Mobile shipyards.
Interview outtakes from THE WAR:
"I came home the summer of '44 and worked at the government nursery school which was downtown in Christ Church rectory and we had the children of the women that worked in the shipyards. Rosie the riveter would come bring her child in all of her headgear and her togs that she did her riveting in and drop her precious little baby off and go down and work all day and come back at five o'clock and pick the child up."
