Excerpt from Public Pensions to Widows With Children: A Study of Their Administration, in Several American Cities

[For the three months beginning August I, 1912, Mr. Carstens was commissioned by the Russell Sage Foundation to study the actual working of public pensions to widows with children in certain western communities. He spent several weeks in San Francisco, six weeks in Chicago, and much shorter periods in Kansas City, Missouri, and in Milwaukee. In Chicago, investigators made, under his direction, a study of one hundred of the pensioned families. His findings are printed as a contribution toward the practical study of a question now attracting a great deal of attention.]

Introduction

In January of 1909 about two hundred men and women met in the city of Washington upon the invitation of the President of the United States, and held what was known as the White House Conference on the Care of Dependent Children. The first of the resolutions there adopted reads as follows:

Home life is the highest and finest product of civilization. It is the great molding force of mind and of character. Children should not be deprived of it except for urgent and compelling reasons. Children of parents of worthy character, suffering from temporary misfortune and children of reasonably efficient and deserving mothers who are without the support of the normal breadwinner, should, as a rule, be kept with their parents, such aid being given as may be necessary to maintain suitable homes for the rearing of the children. This aid should be given by such methods and from such sources as may be determined by the general relief policy of each community, preferably in the form of private charity, rather than of public relief. Except in unusual circumstances, the home should not be broken up for reasons of poverty, but only for considerations of inefficiency or immorality.

These principles had long been held by many members of this Conference, but they were then for the first time crystallized into compact form and published so widely as to awaken all parts of the country to a realization of their importance. Many went away from that Conference convinced of their universal application, and took active steps to reduce the population of existing child-caring institutions and to prevent the creation of any new ones in their several communities. The resolutions adopted by this White House Conference were without doubt the strongest single factor in developing the sentiment for widows pensions which has found such strong and widespread expression during the last few months.
