The Luckiest Orphans

A History of the Hebrew Orphan Asylum of New York

"Fascinating. . . . I would certainly recommend it to colleagues concerned with dependent children, to anyone interested in the problems of residential and foster care, to New Yorkers, especially Jews, interested in the social history of their city, and generally to urban social historians."
