Abstract:

Since 1877 the Reformatory Prison for Women under successive names has had as its function the punishment and rehabilitation of female offenders. Photographs record social and recreational events in which inmates participated.

Most images are of Fourth of July parades and fairs, 1917-1924, in which inmates are costumed as, e.g., nurses or clowns. Also included are inmates working in fields, inmate children, staff, benefactors, the reformatory facility in winter, and stills from a 1950 production of Superintendent Miriam Van Waters's play, St. Martin of Tours.
