HSS 300 - 1920s & 1930s in the US: Introduction & e-Reference Sources


Welcome to the 1920's and 1930's OWHL Guide.

Click on a tab above to see all of the relevant sources that are available for this assignment. 

Begin by making a list of broad non-history topics that interest you. These could be such things as architecture, sports, fashion, film, music, literature, law, religion, science, etc. Think about how one or two of these areas can be linked to an event in US history

Once you find a broad research area you are interested in, it is time to read an overview so that you can narrow your topic and develop a thesis statement.
