What Infant and Maternal Health Services Provide
for Women and Children in New York City, 1917-1920?

Abstract

        Middle- and upper-class women in the Women's City Club of New York established a maternity Center in 1917 to serve working-class immigrant women and children from the Lower East Side. These documents show how their motivations and organizing strategies as women reformers set an example that city officials eventually followed.
