Rosie the Riveter

For the past twenty-four years, Carol has performed as Rosie the Riveter at the Little White House in Warm Springs, Georgia and other locations throughout the U.S. As Rosie, Carol dons coveralls, work boots, and the iconic head scarf to tell the story of women workers on the home front during World War II. For her work as Rosie the Riveter, Carol received the 2013-14 Little White House Carolyn Carter Award for the most outstanding volunteer and the DAR Women in American History Medal. Additionally, the Little White House was recognized for the most innovative program for a Georgia state park in 1996 and again in 2010 for Carol's performance. Carol is a “Rosebud” affiliate member of the American Rosie the Riveter Association and performs annually for the organization and at the group’s 2016 National Convention. In August of 2007, she performed as Rosie for the National Convention of the American Legion Auxiliary in Reno, Nevada and has been featured at events at Fort Benning, GA, World War II Heritage Days, the Atlanta World War II Roundtable, and the Atlanta History Center.
