A History of the United States Family and Children's Society of Plainfield, New Jersey: 1942-1951
The author realizes that a study of a social agency, a work of historical compilation, can either be a useful source of information to the community, to the agency and to others outside the community who might have reason to look into the beginnings, development, and present status of a social service from a standpoint of the organization of the community to give the best type of efficient professional service to those who are in need for the common good of all, or the study, on the other hand, can be a piece of material that merely is relegated to a library shelf to do no more than to occupy space. Although the author will readily admit that due to her limitations in ability of presentation, this study might not read as volubly as a novel, yet it is hoped that it will be of use and service to the community and its friends because the writer believes the subject matter is vital and distinguished.
