In 1946, Walter Freeman introduced the transorbital ice pick lobotomy. Touted as a procedure that could be learned and subsequently performed by psychiatrists outside of the operating room, the technique was quickly criticized by neurosurgeons.

FrazierNABSW

E. Franklin Frazier, Director of the Atlanta School of Social Work from 1922 to 1927, is probably the best known of the African American pioneers in social work. He is scarcely well known; the Encyclopedia of Social Work did not include his biography until 1987 and schools of social work rarely note and less often study his contributions to the field.

This documentary, produced by Allan King, examines the life of the alcoholic derelict on Vancouver’s “skid row”. In this segment, Jimmy, who lives by the harbour, talks about his life over the years and how he has survived living on the streets. His answers reflect the hopelessness he feels about his day-to-day existence, often panhandling and spending the money on alcohol.

WPA workers from 26 states, head by David Lasser, President of the Workers Alliance, today protested to Assistant Administrator Aubrey Williams the recent cuts in relief. Their kicks were against the current wage scales, geographical wage differentials, inadequate number of WPA enrollees and the ‘unjust and unfair’ labor relations setup. Lasser is on the right and Aubrey Williams in center seated, 12/15/38

Standoff between militia and strikers, Lawrence, Mass. 1912. Prompted by a wage cut, the walkout spread quickly from mill to mill across the city. Strikers defied the assumptions of conservative trade unions within the American Federation of Labor that immigrant, largely female and ethnically diverse workers could not be organized. The Lawrence strike is referred to as the “Bread and Roses” strike and “The Strike for Three Loaves.”
