Summary
By the mid 1800 the street corners of New York City were home to several thousand homeless, abandoned and orphaned children. Relief came with the establishment of the Children's Aid Society in 1853 by one Charles Loring Brace. The society would gather likely orphans and send them west by train in groups of anywhere from 6-100, stopping at predetermined destinations where it was known foster homes were available. Agents were to visit these foster homes and write twice year of experiences. The orphan trains of the Children's Aid Society ran until 1929 and this text presents the story of one agent-Rev. Mr. Herman Clarke
