Description
A copy of a typed, formatted newsletter for the Brownson Settlement House. Newsletter includes a front page, a features page, a club news page, and a sports page. Each page, laid out in 3 columns, contains short news stories on activities, special events, group elections, athletic competitions, and general announcements pertaining to the settlement house.
Born into a politically prominent Los Angeles family, Mary Julia Workman founded the Brownson House Settlement Association in 1901 and led it for 19 years. The Brownson House assisted underprivileged and immigrant families in the city, providing them with educational, vocational and social programs such as student clubs, Sunday school, dances, and sporting events. Brownson House was originally located in a rented cottage on Aliso St., but moved to a new facility on Jackson St. in late 1904 or early 1905.
