LILIAN WALD: Crusader and Neighbor

Email this review


The success of The House on Henry Street and Windows on Henry Street have paved the way -- if it needed to be paved -- for a wide market for this graceful biography of the leading spirit in Henry Street. It is a story of a life of dedication; of a spirit of sharing and loving; of gaiety and charm, backed up by fire and force and tremendous power. The early part of the story is anecdotal and very human; the last half inevitably finds the woman caught up in the pressure of events. Not a definitive biography, but a definite contribution to the story of social service in America, and of a great woman.
