Society for the History of Children and Youth

Spring 2010

June, 2010

But . . . here it is at last.



Kathleen Jones, on behalf of all the contributors and editors


We need your help: Editors for new columns, organizers for individual themed issues, reporters on conferences, web designers-- we need your help. Interested SHCY members should send a note to me at
