The Rochester Civic and Social Centers

by Edward J. Ward - 1911

On February 15, 1907, delegates from eleven organizations, representing more: than fifty thousand citizens of Rochester, met in the Chamber of Commerce and organized the School Extension Committee. One of the leading spirits in this body was Mr. Howard Bradstreet, who has done much for the playground movement in Rochester. He is now continuing his good service in New York City. The committee asked for and secured an appropriation of five thousand dollars, to be used in maintaining one playground and one vacation school, and to make a beginning of social-center work. It also gained the consent of the Board of Education to administer the funds.
