Wise, Wacky Auntie Mame, Life, Nov 12, 1956, cover story (Life Magazine Archive)
Life magazine is a great way to get a feel for an era (clothing, make-up, furniture, cars, homes). You can use Academic Search Complete to look for Life articles on a particular topic, but the articles rarely include pictures. You can also use Life's online index, and Lifes online photo archive. To find pictures or just get a feel for an era, you might try browing through our old Life magazine collection. We have paper copies for 1942-1967 and 1998- 2000. They are bound and shelved on 6th floor.
