A Study Of Prematurely And Routinely Discharged Patients From Louisville General Hospital In 1946., Ruth Coleman Davidson

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

In July 1946 the Board of Health of Louisville and Jefferson County, Kentucky, announced its decision to curtail services of the public health department serving the metropolitan area surrounding and including Louisville, and the outlying agricultural region in the rural part of Jefferson County.

The close association, as a teaching hospital, with the University of Louisville Medical School, had helped General Hospital, the former municipal hospital known as City Hospital to become a ...


Participation And Leadership In Voluntary Agencies At Plain City, Utah, 1947, Wade H. Andrews May 1948

Participation And Leadership In Voluntary Agencies At Plain City, Utah, 1947, Wade H. Andrews

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Western culture emphasizes the ideal of individual attainment in social, pol1tical, religious, and economic fields. The development of qualities of leadership through participation in communal activities by all persons in a community has served as a battle cry for democracy. The acceptance of the free school system meant that everyone was to have a chance to achieve. But equality did not come with opportunity. Somehow the abler ones moved along at a faster rate. Certainly, with all the emphasis on achievement, groups differ widely in the extent to which leadership is dispersed, in the nature of attendance at group functions ...


Family Problems In Brigham City, Utah, Dean M. Mcdonald May 1948

Family Problems In Brigham City, Utah, Dean M. Mcdonald

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Less than a century ago most primary functions of life centered in the family. One by one many of these functions have moved out of the home into the factory, the school, the church and the community. In the loss of functions which held the family together as a unit, disintegration set in and numerous evidences of family disorganization began to appear. Many people today, cognizant of the role which the family still plays in implementing personalities and in sustaining social stability, are nevertheless deeply concerned with increasing evidences of family disorganization.

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Since 1909, the King's Daughters' Home for Incurables in Louisville, Kentucky, has provided institutional care for physically handicapped persons who are residents of Kentucky. A hospital survey done by the Kentucky State Board of Health in 1945-46 classified the Home as a "custodial-type institution", and did not include it in the survey, as it was not considered a hospital. Surveys on phases of the work of the institution were done in 1914 (Haven Emerson Survey) and in 1940 (Health and Welfare Council Survey) for administrative purposes. This year the work of the Home has provided the material for three ...

The Development Of Professional Education For Social Work At The Raymond A. Kent School Of Social Work Of The University Of Louisville, 1918-1946., Maurice L. Kohnhorst

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

It would be impossible to single out any individual or group and give credit tor the development of the Raymond A. Kent School of Social Work. There are names which bring to mind real achievement and tremendous effort in the field which they had chosen and to which they had dedicated their service; names which lived through years of discouragement and disillusionment; names which perhaps have been forgotten with the passage of time but played vital roles in different periods of the development of the school. This, therefore, is not an account of things happening, but in reality, an account ...
