Scope and Contents

This small collection spans the first seventy years of the existence of the Association for the Relief of Respectable, Aged and Indigent Females in New York City, from its inception in 1813 through its move, in 1883, to a substantial (and, ultimately, final) home at 891 Amsterdam Avenue. Due to the significant breaks in coverage, these records are best consulted in conjunction with the Association’s published annual reports; the New-York Historical Society Library holds the years 1815-1871 (with gaps) under call number F128 HV1447 .N5 A87.

Arrangement

The eight small volumes in this collection are housed in a single box. They are individually foldered and arranged in two series:

Series I: Expenditures, Receipts, and Meeting Minutes

Series II: Pensioner and Asylum records
