New York: Survey Associates, Inc., 1926. First edition. October 1926 issue. Monthly supplement to the twice-monthly "Survey" magazine with a main focus on social welfare issues. Contains the first appearances of both woman's articles. Kelley was a steadfast champion of women and children. She was the first General Secretary of the National Consumers' League "chartered in 1899 by two of America’s leading social reformers Jane Addams and Josephine Lowell.... Under the direction of ... Florence Kelley, the National Consumer’s league exposed child labor and other scandalous working conditions. Kelley was to become one of the most influential and effective social reformers of the 20th century" (NCL website). Her article herein is billed as the first installment in her occasional series "Notes of Sixty Years." Mary Breckinridge, "The Nurse-on-Horseback," was founder of the Frontier Nursing Service established in 1925 to provide professional health care in the Appalachian Mountains of eastern Kentucky. It has since "served as a model of rural health care delivery for the United States and the rest of the world" (Gina Castlenovo, "Truth About Nursing" website). Breckinridge's article was the inaugural winner of the Harmon Foundation Award, in this case, for "an account of some experiment, invention or achievement in the field of public health." 64 pages, illustrated with drawings and photographs. Scarce.
