Description: This series of interviews was conducted by Vida S. Grayson, ACSW, and a trained oral historian, for the National Association of Social Workers, to provide a history of social work as it evolved from community charities, chests, and other philanthropic agencies into a highly structured professional and academic discipline in the United States between the 1920s and 70s. Mrs. Grayson interviewed prominent figures from both the academic and practicing sectors of the "second generation" of social workers, who discuss the emergence of the three separate schools of social work theory: the New York Freudian, Pennsylvania Rankian, and the Chicago school of public welfare. The participants consider the pros and cons of this factionalism in the field.
