Crow, Ruth (1992) History of children's services : bread and treacle diet - a collection of documents from the 1930's and some talk notes by Ruth Crow. Crow Collection Association.

Abstract

In April 1992 Ruth Crow was one of the speakers at a Brunswick Historical Society discussion group on reminiscences of life in Brunswick in the 1930's and 1940's. Her talk was mainly anecdotal about her two attempts at tackling the nutrition problem by meals at factories and schools. Here are her introductory remarks, some facts published in the booklet "Food and Health" and some photostats of documents she used to illustrate her talk.
