United States Children's Bureau Series, 1929-1944

Scope and content:

This series has correspondence, notes, family schedules, drafts of reports and studies, printed material, and photographs from Warburton's work for the Children's Bureau, 1939-1942. The bulk of the material is printed reports, either done or received by the Children's Bureau. While at the Bureau, Warburton supervised two studies that eventually were published: Industrial Homework Conditions in the Candlewick-Bedspread and Lace Industries, and Work and Welfare of Children of Agricultural Laborers in Hidalgo County, Texas. Material from the Hidalgo County study provides a penetrating view of social and economic conditions in south Texas in the early 1940's. Besides the copious printed material from the study, there are many photographs, some of which are quite good.
