Description
This collection consists of approximately fifty of Prof. Schindler-Rainman's papers and publications from the decades of the 1960s and the 1970s, as well as an oral history. Eva Schindler-Rainman (d. 1996) was a leader in the field of social work voluntarism, and one of the few voluntarism pioneers to gain popularity both within and outside the field. An organizational consultant, a social worker with a PhD, and a behavioral scientist, she was known for her advocacy of effective human resource development--paid and volunteer--and for non-traditional organization design and development. She worked in both the nonprofit and corporate worlds, eventually becoming one of the "deans" of the National Training Laboratory (NTL) in Maine. She was one of the originators and disseminators of "brainstorming," a problem-solving exercise that broke new ground in the 1970s.
