dc.description.abstract The history of the Women Air Force Service Pilots (WASP) is largely unknown to both the public and academia. Little material about the WASP has been published in the sixty-three years since the WASP were disbanded because of the controversy raised by the male pilots, media, and Congress in 1944. Unlike the other female auxiliary groups in World War II, the WASP did not receive militarization until 1977 because of gender discrimination. A few of the WASP had the foresight to write their personal histories, but most did not view their wartime experience as extraordinary. Wings Across America, an organization with the purpose of documenting and digitizing the histories of the WASP, has interviewed over one hundred women for the purpose of educating future generations. The interviews from Wings Across America used in this thesis are being used for the first time in a scholarly work. en
