Levering, Patricia W., and Ralph B. Levering. "Women in Relief: The Carroll County Children's Aid Society in the Great Depression." Maryland Historical Magazine 72 (Winter 1977): 534-46.
Annotation / Notes: Examines how a rural county in Mid-Maryland dealt with the Great Depression in the early 1930s. Before the New Deal and state programs were implemented, responsibility for aid fell to private organizations. The Children's Aid Society, ran by women, helped Carroll Countians survive the Great Depresssion. The authors hypothesize that rural areas with self-help operations endured the depression better and longer that urban areas.
