| Book Description: |
As orphan asylums ceased to exist in the late twentieth century, interest in them dwindled as well. Yet, from the Civil War to the Great Depression, America's dependent children received more aid from orphan asylums than from any other means. The ideologies and institutions behind this aid are the subject of Timothy Hacsi's book.
