The Illinois Children's Home and Aid Society appointed a committee of outstanding pediatricians and psychiatrists to outline a plan for an institution for emotionally disturbed children. This pamphlet describes such a home, with specifications for the building and staff, the latter to cost $81,640 per year. Presumably, copies of the pamphlet may be obtained from the society.
