If it was World War I, you could find her making bandages on the home front or even maneuvering an ambulance across the battlefield in France.
In the 1920s she was driving a car, flying an airplane or even starting her own movie studio.
In the 1930s and later she was routinely solving crimes and mysteries that regularly baffled the police.
These plucky teens and young women were de facto role models for multiple generations of American females, according to Nancy Down, head librarian of the Browne Popular Culture Library at Bowling Green State University.
Down presented the Brown Bag luncheon talk "Career Girls and Amateur Sleuths: Girls' Series Fiction from the 1920s to 1950s" on Wednesday in the university Women's Center, one of a dozen Women's History Month programs being held during March at BGSU.
Whether we're talking about the Outdoor Girls series that ran from 1913 to 1933, the war-era Red Cross Girls series, or the 1920s-30s Girl Aviator books, these series reflected changes that were happening in society at the time, according to Down.
