Title
The Protestant Orphan Asylum and the Montreal Ladies’ Benevolent Society: A Case Study in Protestant Child Charity in Montreal, 1822-1900
Abstract
Within the Montreal Protestant community of the nineteenth century, the lay elite controlled poor relief. Women played a major role in this undertaking, managing most charities for women and children and imposing their values of parenting and work. The author examines the organization and work of female charity committees as well as the services offered, the relevance of gender to charity management, and attitudes to childhood and family.
