Online exhibit: When Skies Were Young

Nowhere is Americans’ love for technology in the first half of the twentieth century more obvious than in the books they give their children. Between 1900 and 1950, over eighty technically oriented series, comprising over six hundred volumes, were available to readers (girls as well as boys) between the ages of 10 and 16. These include such titles as The Motor Boys (1906-1921), The Radio Boys (1922-30), and the greatest of them all, the Tom Swift stories (1910-35). All of them give their readers a picture of a society in which young persons, at home with various aspects of technology, use that technology to make their way in the world.
