Musselman, Virginia W. Home Play in Wartime. New York: National Recreation Association, 1943.

Produced by the National Recreation Association, this volume celebrates personal sacrifices made to support the war. For instance, staying at home to develop family game time was encouraged because it helped save money for true necessities. In this way, tire rubber was reserved for critical business use rather than for personal travel. The idea of the nuclear family at home was thus promoted as central to victory.
