Scope and Contents

Documents concerning the National Social Work Council, an organization that exists to serve social work organizations through the facilitation of the sharing of ideas, planning conferences and facilitating the study of common problems. As World War II approaches and throughout the duration of the war the discussion turns to service to military members and addressing the changing needs of civilians during wartime. After the war these discussions focus on the transition to peacetime and service to veterans. Correspondence and meeting minutes address the nature of the relationship between the national organization and local organizations in addition to matters of management and financing of the National Social Work Council and its activities.
