Abstract In addition to the importance of the annual reports, historians who study women's voluntary organizations will find these papers useful. From the beginning, they show hospital leaders running the institution like a business, very much in keeping with the organizational patterns of women's benevolent work earlier in the nineteenth century. Other women's historians will note with interest the participation of philanthropist Anna T. Jeanes. Researchers of the history of medicine will find these materials very instructive in illustrating how treatment and training programs changed over the course of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
