Originally published in The Pittsburgh District, a volume of the 1914 Pittsburgh Survey, this report is an in-depth study of children's institutions in Pittsburgh at the time. Housing accommodation standards, children's schedules, and education curriculum are discussed at length. Based on the social needs of children during the rise of industry in the city, this study presents a program for the conservation and rehabilitation of the homes of children, the requirement for thoughtfully selected foster homes, the adoption of standards of care in foster homes, and the enforcement of these standards.

FLROENCE L. LATTIMORE was associate director of Department of Child Hygiene of the Russell Sage Foundation.
