Physical Description: 0.5 linear ft.

Scope and Content

This series includes various publications created by the Los Angeles Florence Crittenton Home. Most of these are aimed at keeping members of the association, circle members, and potential donors apprised of the activities of the Home. These contain a wealth of information on donors, administrators, and Home projects.
Statistical and financial information unavailable elsewhere can sometimes be found in these publications. Of special note is the long run of Florence Crittenton Bulletins that are preserved. These cover a 22 year period in the history of the Home. Most of the publications have been rescued from scrapbooks or other corrosive environments.

Arrangement note

Publications are arranged alphabetically by title or origin.

Physical Description: 1.0 linear ft.

Scope and Content

This series is mostly a photographic history of the Los Angeles Florence Crittenton Home, although one folder of resumes is preserved. Most of the photographs were maintained in albums. Photos were removed from this highly acidic environment and the captions written beneath them were transcribed onto the envelopes into which each photo was rehoused. The listing below includes the date of the photograph and the caption assigned in the original scrapbooks.
Particular note should be made of two albums created for special purposes: One celebrates a tea party given on 1971 September 10; all the photos associated with this album are filed in folder 1:25. The other is a memory book presented to Katheryn Nielsen as a part of the honors rendered her at her retirement; although these photos have been reintegrated into the over-all collection, a listing of which photos were used for that album can be found in folder 1:22.

Arrangement note

Arrangement is by date. Most photographs are described and stored individually. Photos listed in other sections of this finding aid are not listed here.

Clippings 1928-1983

Physical Description: 4.0 linear ft.

Scope and Content

This series includes 13 albums into which newspaper clippings and other items have been pasted. The highly acidic environment of the albums has made them exceptionally fragile. Clippings mostly concern the social activities related to fundraising or other public support programs. The 1967 album was originally used as a sign-in register for local, regional, and national meetings in 1964-1965; clippings were then pasted over these registers. From 1966 on, the clippings have been collected by Allen's P. C. B., a news clippings service. Many non-newspaper items have been extracted from these albums for preservation with other series.
