Title from cover.

Prepared by the Appointment Bureau, Women's Educational and Industrial Union.

The WEIU, a non-profit social and educational agency, was founded in Boston in 1877 by Dr. Harriet Clisby and incorporated in 1880, "to increase fellowship among women and to promote the best practical methods for securing their educational, industrial and social advancement." Initially it provided practical help and training programs for women, teaching them how to produce marketable goods and selling their products. Among the social services offered were legal aid for needy women, especially domestics; school lunches; training and placement for the blind and other handicapped persons; health education and free medical treatment; and investigation of working conditions in shops and factories. In the 1930s it added employment services, and in the 1950s became involved with housing problems of the elderly.
