Abstract These papers would largely be of interest to two groups of researchers: those interested in institutions, particularly women's institutions, and those interested in late nineteenth and early twentieth-century attempts to curb urban "vice." Historians can see how such campaigns were overlaid with assumptions about class, ideal womanhood, and other factors.
