In 1945 Mrs. McKimmon wrote the book, When We’re Green, We Grow, which was about how the home demonstration program had grown.

In 1949 the National Broadcasting Company created a weekly radio show which was about Mrs. McKimmon’s life and her work with families across North Carolina.

Here is Mrs. McKimmon in New York with people from the radio show about her life.
