Presented at the fifty-first congress of the American Prison Association in 1921, this pamphlet attempts to develop proper, universal plans for a detention home for women. Arguing that each prison would have specific building requirements and characteristics, the author presents several well-established canons of architecture and building which should be followed in any jail, emphasizing humane conditions and required needs. Printed with Plans for a Model Jail by R. W. Zimmerman.
