“War has left a very direct legacy to the poor of New York City – a legacy that is being felt at the present time, ten months after the armistice, more acutely even than it was at the time of the armistice. This legacy is in the form of increases in the cost of the necessities of life, which is causing serious concern to those organizations which are confronted with the necessity of giving assistance to those who by reason of sickness or death are in need. . . .”

Nicholas W., 52. Twenty years ago he lost a leg and for eighteen years worked on a canal boat with a very poor substitute for an artificial leg. His eyesight failed and he could no longer work with safety. Last fall he was sitting in Battery Park one day, with nothing to do and no prospect of anything to do, when someone told him of the Toy Shop. He immediately walked all the way to 50th Street to apply for work. He began work the next morning and has been in the shop since, and, although without experience, he is one of the best painters in the shop. He has no family or friends who can help him.

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.
