Children's Aid Society of New York: An Index to the Federal, State, and Local Census Records of Its Lodging Houses, 1855-1925
Carolee Inskeep
080634623X
January 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This is the second book by Mrs. Inskeep that breaks new ground with respect to the estimated 200,000 poor and abandoned orphaned children who were shipped from New York City orphanages to western families for adoption between 1853 and 1929. These children were placed primarily by the New York Foundling Hospital (NYFH) and the Children's Aid Society (CAS) and are now referred to as "Orphan Train Riders." Information as to the identities of a large number of these children has been preserved in federal and state censuses taken between 1855 and 1925, as well as in the 1890 New York City Police Census, and represents a potential boon to the descendants of these foundlings. This book, the sequel to Mrs. Inskeep's 1995 work on the orphans from the New York Foundling Hospital, treats the residents of the Children's Aid...

Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook
Joshua Piven
0811842304
June 2003
Paperback

From Publishers Weekly
Filled with cheeky but practical solutions to just about any problem a college student could face, this slender volume opens with an ominous warning: "when a life is imperiled or a dire situation is at hand, safe alternatives may not exist." Nonetheless, many of the situations it tackles are far from life threatening; how to avoid doing laundry, how to pull an all-nighter and how to identify bad cafeteria food are among them. Its advice on choosing a school and surviving dorm bathrooms ("never touch the floor with your bare feet") clearly suggests that it was produced by a team who knows that of which they write. And the detailed primer on making it through the travails of college partying—with tips on how to avoid a nightmare hookup—isn’t there just for effect: it includes serious counsel like "Do...
