Olson, Karen Faith. When a Woman Has a Working Life: The Transformation of Gender Relations in a Steelmaking Community. Ph.D. diss., University of Maryland at College Park, 1995.
Annotation / Notes: Captures the social world of steelworkers' wives in Dundalk, Maryland, through sixty interviews. A planned industrial community from the 1880s, steel dominated life in Dundalk. Male work culture, swing shifts, and high wages served company needs and kept women out of the paid labor force. A decline in steelmaking forced women to "get a working life," which has altered role expectations and gender relations in that community. Class bias and racial divisions are also factors in this transformation.

Torchia, Robert Wilson. "Eliza Ridgely and the Ideal of American Womanhood." Maryland Historical Magazine 90 (Winter 1995): 404-23.
Annotation / Notes: Argues that Thomas Sully's painting Lady with a Harp: Eliza Ridgely was a propaganda piece to counter the British stereotype of American women as "being unsophisticated, ignorant, and devoid of social graces" (406). This portrait of fifteen-year-old Ridgely shows grace, poise, feminity, and other traits (including instrumental music) associated with British of true womanhood.
