This small collection contains an almost complete run of "California Children," the monthly/quarterly bulletin of California's Department of Social Services, 1938-1944. Intended to provide an avenue for disseminating and sharing an understanding of childhood well being, the bulletins cover topics ranging from services for crippled children to music and mental hygiene. As stated in vol. 1, no. 1, "This bulletin is our medium to bring to each other those items which interest us, those opportunities for professional growth, to the end that as individuals we may contribute to and through our State Department of Social Welfare an understanding of childhood which will contribute to the well being of all." The bulletin was published monthly beginning January 15, 1938, then switched to quarterly publication in 1943 with volume 6. The collection contains a complete run of volumes 1, 3, 4 , and incomplete runs of volumes 2, 5, 6 and 7. Also included is an "Index to Past Issues" and an author, title, and subject index.
