A 3-page, typewritten memo from Mary Stanton to George Wyman identifying and correcting perceived innacuracies in the contents of the History section of a 1962 orientation booklet for the Welfare Planning Council, Los Angeles Region. She notes inaccuracies in dates pertaining to the founding of certain social agencies, the omission of the name of a president of the council, and presents a narrative description of the development of two different social committees in Los Angeles, one the precursor of the Welfare Planning Council, by two rival organizations. She also draws attention to the belief that Los Angeles has a community organization program older than Pittsburgh and Milwaukee and concludes with a narrative on the foun of the Volunteer Bureau.
