    Hello, everyone. I am a history graduate student working on my thesis... I am looking for primary sources showing a negative reaction to WWII-era pin up art. This would be coming from moralists, traditionalists, Christians, etc., expressing disapproval due to its lewdness, etc. Sermon notes, newspaper articles, books, etc. are what I am looking for. Also, any primary sources related to Alberto Vargas would be helpful too. If you can help, please e-mail me at sullivannj@lopers.unk.edu. Thank you so much! Very much appreciated!!

    It seems to me that you are building a bias into your thesis. You should be looking for reaction from any and all sources, not just the ones you assume to be the most vocal about it. By specifying the sources, you predispose those who might provide you with examples to only look for those examples.
