World War I-era America

I've been able to glean a bit here and a bit there from research on Google, Wiki, the usual sources, even *gasp* the library. Everyone loves WWII, nobody loves WWI.

I need little details on daily life in midwestern U.S. before, during and immediately after World War I. Not the Roaring 20s nightlife, not politics or war tactics. Things like how an ordinary house would be heated, were there still poor shantytowns as in the post-Civil War era, would they use a gas lamp to light a room at night, what would middle-class women wear on an ordinary day, would poor and rich boys/girls attend the same school... Details.

Anyone got a suggested site/book? Thanks in advance.
