A Study of the Services Offered to the Unmarried Mother by St. Catherine Infant Home, Albany, New York, 1886–1949
A landmark of Albany, New York, is the Brady Maternity Hospital and Infant Home. This is the corporate title of two separate institutions under one administration, which serve the community in and around Albany in several ways. It is not the purpose of this study to discuss all of these services in detail, but rather to concentrate on the service offered to the unmarried mother by the shelter-care offered by one small part of the larger agency. The maternity home service is housed in the Infant Home division and, at the time of the delivery of the child, the facilities of the hospital are used. In January, 1951, the Home was given the name of St. Catherine Infant Home, in hon Dr of St. Catherine Labour. Even though the formal title is retained, this new name will be commonly used to avoid confusion with other institutions in Albany. The author believes it best to use this name in her study also, to avoid confusion in the mind of the reader.
