5 Promotional Photographs - featuring Italian Women from Hudson Park Library Class,- Committee on the Education of Non-English-·Speaking Women
, 1923. 1923. In New York City an emergency Committee on the Education of Non-English-·Speaking Women was developing a new method of teaching foreign-born women English, sending teachers to visit among them, organize small classes of neighbors, and arrange for a convenient meeting place in one of the homes. Initial results were so encouraging that the Committee, which soon changed its name to Education Committee for Non-English­ Speaking Women, and in 1927 to Neighborhood Teacher Association, hoped to make a demonstration sufficiently impressive to bring about general adoption of its method. Toward the cost of this demonstration the (Russell Sage) Foundation made a contribution of $5,000 in 1923, conditional on the obtaining of $25,000 more, and continued to help for a number of years. .
