Directors of the American Social Hygiene Association, 1914-1918

We constructed this table as a preliminary step in documenting ties between the Illinois Vigilance Association,  Vice Commission of the City of Chicago, the Chicago Committee of FifteenUniversity of Chicago,  the Rockefeller Foundation, the American Social Hygiene Association, and the federal Council for National Defense and its Advisory Commission, especially the War Training Camp Activities Commission and the General Medical Board and its committees on Hygiene and Sanitation and Civilian Cooperation.

For the brief period documented below, the Directors and Officers of the American Social Hygiene Association were published as part of the cover material for their journal, Social Hygiene. We hope to be able to be able to expand the coverage at a later date.
