"What Happens to Children?" Is Topic of Talk at Hopkins

Matthew A. Crenson, professor of political science at The Johns Hopkins University, will present a lecture, "The Orphanage and Welfare: What Happens to Children?" in the Garrett Room of the Eisenhower Library at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 29.

This lecture is part of the Wednesday Noon Series, presented by the Office of Special Events. All programs in the series are held at noon in the Garrett Room of the Eisenhower Library on the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles Street in Baltimore. Admission is free.

Crenson is the author of a soon-to-published study of the relationship between the decline of orphanages and the rise of the modern welfare system, entitled The Invisible Orphanage: A Prehistory of the American Welfare System.

He will discuss welfare, orphanages and the well-being of children, topics being debated now in Washington. During the talk, Crenson will look at the current federal mechanisms of child support and explore alternatives to ensure that children are healthy, secure and eager to learn when they begin their formal education.

For information, call the Office of Special Events at (410) 516-7157.
