 File — Container: 4

Scope and Contents note

From the Series:

This series is composed primarily of Miss Gilman's writings and speeches at the time of her quest for political offices in Maryland. A smaller amount of material centers on her YMCA work in France. Her autobiographical sketches, and some early childhood writings are included in the Personal Series.

Subject matter centers on issues suitable to the Socialist Party in the 1930s: workers' security, relief needs, women in industry and a Schoeneman Company strike. Some material by other Socialist speakers is included, notably, James Frederick Green and Louis Waldman.

Miss Gilman's articles which describe her work with the YMCA in France, 1917-1918, are rich in detail. They describe the canteens, holiday celebrations, and the routine duties to which she was assigned.

Miss Gilman's bibliographic notes and a brief, historical outline of The Johns Hopkins University are the final items in this series.
