Abstract:

The records of the Family and Children's Society of Baltimore, MD and its predecessor agencies provide a history of private and public charitable work in the city, 1849-1977. The records also reveal a history of the development of social work as a profession. Included are office files, financial records, correspondence, minutes, statistics, manuals, photographs, legal documents, case files, annual reports, and biographical information of early charity workers.

The records of each predecessor agency of the Family and Children's Society are arranged into separate series. Documents, minutes, and the published annual reports for each agency give a perspective on the mission and resources during particular time periods. Mergers, administration, and financial mangement are well documented.

In the records are related materials of noted early charity workers including Mary E. Richmond whose association with the Charity Organization Society of Baltimore (1883-1929) is revealed through correspondence, minutes, and office files. Biographical material and photographs of Miss Richmond are included. Cooperation with national organizations such as the Russell Sage Foundation is described in conferrence material, correspondence, and reports 1930-1942. Manuals and guides assigned to staff describe requirements and expectations of social workers involved with case work.Published material outlines many methods of outreach to the community.
