Happy retirement to America's oldest active National Park Service Ranger, Betty Reid Soskin. 👑
Happy retirement to Betty Reid Soskin, who retired today at the age of 100 after serving as America's oldest active National Park Service ranger for the past fifteen years! Soskin began her career as a ranger at age 85 at the Rosie the Riveter WWII Home Front National Historical Park — a park that she had helped plan in its early stages years earlier. As a ranger, Soskin led a popular tour called “Untold Stories and Lost Conversations" during which she gave a tour of the park, shared her personal WWII story, and encouraged others to contribute their own stories to the park's collection of oral histories.
When Soskin joined the planning committee for the Rosie the Riveter Park years ago, she brought a unique perspective: she was the only person of color at the table and she was one of the wartime workers the park aimed to remember. Soskin’s wartime work began when she was 20, when she became a clerk for the boilermakers union. Like many unions, it was segregated; she was hired by the African-American auxiliary. In an interview with the Department of the Interior, she said, “When I graduated from high school as a young woman of color, my chances for employment were limited to two — working in agriculture or as a domestic servant... my job as a clerk in a Jim Crow union hall was a step up; the equivalent of today’s young woman of color being the first in her family to enter college.”
Soskin reflected that, for many of the 'Rosie the Riveters' who went to work during the war, “those years were a high point in their lives.” She further observed that when elderly “Rosies” visit the park, “they express much pride and often great frustration at having been turned loose at the war’s end for the sake of returning veterans to the workplace.” And she expressed her hope that the park captures some of that experience for younger visitors. In reflecting about her own time as a ranger, Soskin said that working at the park gave new meaning to her senior years: “To be a part of helping to mark the place where that dramatic trajectory of my own life, combined with others of my generation, will influence the future by the footprints we’ve left behind has been incredible.”
