  • Scope and Content

    The Stansilaus County Welfare Commission and Welfare Department records consists of materials created by these two entities (subsequently renamed the Stanislaus County Department of Social Services, and now the Community Services Agency). The collection's material is all textual and ranges from ledgers to photocopies of legal agreements; chronologically the material spans the period 1919-1986. The ledgers are particularly valuable: dating from the 1920s and 1930s, they provide information on the amount and reasons for payments to needy persons, thus providing insight into social needs and local government responses to them before the establishment of the welfare state.
