Scholarship Aid, A Study of Forty-Three Alumni of the Social Work Education Program Sponsored by Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Brooklyn, 1932 to 1955
Background of the Study. Education has always played a vital role in the development of man and his community. As knowledge of various vocational fields broadened and deepened, specialized training became necessary for men to fill certain roles in the society. This process is particularly evident in the development of the professions of Law, the Clergy, Medicine, and in this century, Social Work. In the face of human suffering more enlightened methods of providing relief for the lamentable circumstances of one’s fellow man were demanded of the helping professions. But long pre-dating the existence of professions as such there existed in man a sincere desire to help his less fortunate neighbors. This sentiment, while being rudimentary to all the helping professions, is the very essence of Social Work.
