Detailed Collection Information

Historical Note

Germantown Settlement was founded in 1934, when two existing social welfare agencies, Morton Street Day Nursery and Working People's Aid, Inc. and Germantown Community Center merged. Like most settlements, it provided wide-ranging services to its community, including child care, educational and vocational instruction, and classes in art and music. In the 1950s and 1960s, it also worked closely with city agencies to facilitate urban renewal in the Morton neighborhood, while at the same time encouraging community participation and empowerment.

Morton Street Day Nursery and Working People's Aid, Inc. was founded as Morton Street Day Nursery and Free Kindergarten in 1884. Initially, it served a predominantly Irish immigrant community and, in addition to its child care programs, offered lectures, sewing classes, a "diet kitchen" for the sick poor, and other services. Its diverse program and overall concern for the community led to a name change in 1888 to Morton Street Day Nursery and Working People's Aid, Inc. The organization was chartered in 1890. By the 1920s, Morton Street had expanded its services to include art and music programs, and it added a part-time professional social worker to its staff. It joined the Welfare Federation in 1921. Ten years later, it was urged by the Welfare Federation to merge with another similar organization in the neighborhood, Germantown Community Center, which it did in 1934. The Germantown Community Center was founded in 1920 as the Americanization Committee of Germantown, established to serve a new wave of Italian immigrants that were settling in the neighborhood at the time.

Beginning in 1934, the newly created Germantown Settlement set to work, providing aid to families suffering from the Great Depression. Until World War II, the Settlement continued to expand its services, adding a dental clinic, dramatic and athletic activities. It formed a Neighborhood Council in 1939 and an Advisory Committee of Men in 1941. To accommodate its expanding programs, the agency adopted the use of existing neighborhood facilities such as Germantown High School and the Germantown YWCA. During and after World War II, activities for men were curtailed; an "oldsters" group was formed; and home nursing, first aid and canning classes were added to the curriculum. In 1943, a new branch office in the Wister area of northwest Philadelphia was opened at 48 E. Penn Street, and a satellite office was opened in the Olney area shortly thereafter.

Around 1950, Morton was selected by Philadelphia's Redevelopment Authority as a neighborhood in need of urban renewal, and in 1953 planning for a housing project began. Germantown Settlement helped organize the redevelopment efforts, serving as liaison between residents and city agencies. As a result, Morton residents were involved in the entire process, from start to finish. An apparently notable successful example of urban renewal, according to a newspaper article in the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin, dated October 8, 1964, the redeveloped Morton neighborhood was used as the basis for the model community display at the 1964 World's Fair. A copy of the Morton Redevelopment Area Plan is digitized and part of the Schoenberg Center for Electronic Text & Image database through the University of Pennsylvania. It can be accessed here:

During the 1960s and 1970s, Germantown Settlement focused on community building and organizing, with programs centered on housing, crime prevention, job development and youth development. It formed the Northwest Task force on Abandoned Housing, which gave way to the Greater Germantown Housing Development Corporation in 1976.

More recently, in partnership with the Greater Germantown Housing Development, Germantown Settlement instituted the Targeted Block Development Strategy. This program provided services in areas of family support, neighborhood engagement, housing development, workforce and economic development, health care, aging, youth and education. The Germantown Settlement has also partnered with other agencies such as Philadelphia Corporation for Aging, the Philadelphia Federation of Settlements, Office of Housing and Community Development, Philadelphia Development Partnership and the Philadelphia Civic Center. By the late twentieth century, the Settlement established Philadelphia's first family center, Central Germantown Family Center, and created a new public school, the Germantown Settlement Charter School. Local alliances and collaborative efforts, like the Germantown Community Council, Greater Germantown Appeal and the Greater Germantown Alliance, helped to involve area residents into discussion and development of their neighborhood for the future.

In April 2010, the Germantown Settlement filed for bankruptcy. Over the course of the year, the Settlement went to court to discuss repayment options to its lenders for the over $16 million dollars in debts. Emmanuel Freeman, the acting President of Germantown Settlement, was accused of misappropriation of funds, allegations of misconduct and threatened with contempt of court for not signing loan documents. On December 2, 2010 a federal ordered that the Germantown Settlement and all of its assets be liquidated in order to pay back its debts and debtors.

 

Description of Collection

The Germantown Settlement collection houses the records of this social welfare organization from 1946 to 1994, with a majority of the material dating from 1970 to the early 1990s. The collection contains business records, correspondence, financial documents and program files.

Taken together, the records evidence Germantown Settlement’s efforts to assist and generally improve the lives of Germantown residents, particularly the youth and elderly populations, fight crime and eradicate urban blight. While the collection does not offer exhaustive documentation of the Settlement or any of its programs, the records do enable an overall understanding of the organization, its programs and the overarching issues of its community. There is some documentation of the general administration of the Settlement, especially its leadership and finances, as well as its relationship with other social welfare agencies. Researchers interested in the history of Germantown Settlement, or of social welfare organizations generally, will find relevant material in this collection.

Topics documented in this collection will likely be found throughout the entire collection due to duplication of materials and the lack of any order prior to processing. Singular series and subseries should not be considered a comprehensive portrayal of the operation and activities of the organization or even a particular part of the organization. There are significant gaps in dates and documentation within every series and subseries. As a result, users interested in a specific topic are advised to read the entire finding aid closely, and to peruse the general subject file, which is part of the Administrative records series, in addition to any subject specific portion of the collection. In the subject file researchers will find records related to nearly all topics represented elsewhere in the collection, as well as photographs and two scrapbooks.

The collection is divided into three series: “Administrative Records, 1946-1994” “Program Files, 1960-1993” and “Philadelphia Corporation for Aging records, 1967-1994.” Please review series descriptions and container lists for additional information.

Series 2 encompasses the records of programs developed and/or administered by Germantown Settlement from 1960 to 1993.

Processing Information

Finding aid prepared by Megan Good and Forrest Wright, 2010. The creation of the electronic guide for this collection was made possible through generous funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, administered through the Council on Library and Information Resources’ “Cataloging Hidden Special Collections and Archives” Project.

This collection was minimally processed in 2009-2011, as part of an experimental project conducted under the auspices of the Philadelphia Area Consortium of Special Collections Libraries to help eliminate processing backlog in Philadelphia repositories. A minimally processed collection is one processed at a less intensive rate than traditionally thought necessary to make a collection ready for use by researchers. When citing sources from this collection, researchers are advised to defer to folder titles provided in the finding aid rather than those provided on the physical folder.

Employing processing strategies outlined in Mark Greene's and Dennis Meissner's 2005 article, More Product, Less Process: Revamping Traditional Processing Approaches to Deal With Late 20th-Century Collections, the project team tested the limits of minimal processing on collections of all types and ages, in 23 Philadelphia area repositories. A primary goal of the project, the team processed at an average rate of 2-3 hours per linear foot of records, a fraction of the time ordinarily reserved for the arrangement and description of collections. Among other time saving strategies, the project team did not extensively review the content of the collections, replace acidic folders or complete any preservation work.
