North Carolina Board of Public Charities
Annual Report of the Board of Public Charities of North Carolina, 1910
Raleigh: Edwards & Broughton, [1911?].

Summary

The North Carolina Board of Public Charities Annual Report for 1910 begins with a list of recommendations that include fire protection for the Goldsboro hospital, new laws governing voluntary commitment to asylums, a state tuberculosis camp, and separate facilities for epileptic patients. It also reprints the conclusions of the International Prison Conference held in Washington, D.C., October 2-8, 1910. Board secretary Daisy Denson and other delegates attended this conference and discussed issues such as parole conditions and juvenile offenders. Included within the report are data from charities, schools, hospitals, prisons, orphanages, and other facilities. The report also includes a list of relevant institutions, private and public, across the state as well as their locations and their superintendents. A detailed index at the end of the work is helpful for locating specific data within the report.
