The Role of Wiltwyck School, Esopus, New York, in Rehabilitating Delinquent Boys, Eight to Twelve: 1950-1951
Credit should be given to the Philanthropic Society of London which, as early as 1788, carried on work in the field of delinquency. It is quite possible that this organization was the direct cut growth of John Howard's personal interest in the care and treatment of delinquent boys. It was the interest of John Howard that boys who were confined for correction should be separated from other prisoners. The Philanthropic Society began with a single child and increased its activities by utilizing three small rough cottages to house the boys who were picked up on the streets of the metropolitan area and lived by begging and pilfering. This organization advocated the family system of child care and used agriculture as a means of rehabilitating delinquent and homeless children.
