In 1846, a group of women came together to form what would become one of Hamilton's most important nineteenth-century social welfare institutions. Through the Ladies Benevolent Society and Hamilton Orphan Asylum, they managed and administered a charitable visiting society, orphan asylum, and aged women's home. In Private Women and the Public Good, Carmen J. Nielson explores the history of this pioneering Hamilton charity and demonstrates that despite its notable political significance, women's charitable work failed to challenge the staunch division of private and public spheres.
