In 1956, under the direction of Robin M. Williams and John Dean, 427 women were interviewed about family and non-family roles, their health activities, and attitudes on various issues. All the women lived in upstate New York. Thirty years later, Phyllis Moen and Donna Dempster McClain located and interviewed 313 of these women. In 1987 and 1988 they interviewed one daughter from each of 246 of these women. The daughters were asked about their roles and attitudes and about their relationships with their mothers. The mother and daughter pairs make up the sample for the project.
