With the beginnings of the Russell Sage Foundation (RSF) in 1907, a new kind of philanthropy began to emerge: research and action programs linked together to understand and deal with the social issues of the time. The Sage Foundation from the start played a leading part in the new field of social work as well as in city planning, public health, criminal justice, and education. The documents produced in these efforts are available in a convenient and compact format in this microfiche collection. Included are: Research reports, in pamphlet form, originally printed for distribution to social and health workers and educators Minutes of the foundation's board of trustees and executive committee, with related documentsunpublished sources on the history, finances, and personalities behind the foundation Selections from the RSF archives: correspondence, internal memoranda, and documents Complete runs of two limited-distribution serials: the Charity Organization Bulletin (1908-1918) and the Social Case Histories Series (1920), both distributed only to selected social workers A two-volume history of the foundation written in 1947 by its executive director, John M. Glenn.
