1Title:  Edward L. Worthington Papers     
 Creator:  Worthington, Edward L. 
 Dates:  1924-1934 
 Abstract:  Edward L. Worthington was a Cleveland, Ohio, investment broker and civic leader who served as Welfare Director for the city of Cleveland and president of the Cleveland Boys' Bureau, an organization which assisted homeless youth during the depression of the 1930s. Worthington also served as chairman of the Farms Committee, a 1933 program to provide jobs for unemployed Clevelanders. The collection consists of correspondence, reports and publications. The collection pertains primarily to Worthington's work with the Cleveland Boys' Bureau, as its president and chief fund raiser. The correspondence includes material from the Boys' Clubs of America and Union League Foundation of Boys' Clubs, as well as Dudley S. Blossom, a prominent Cleveland philanthropist. The material highlights the efforts of a private charity to deal with the social upheaval and disintegration of the family structure brought on by the 1929 depression.
