New York: The American Guardian Association, National Fund Campaign Headquarters, 8 West Fortieth St. nd [ca. 1925]. Broadside, 55 x 44 cm. Followed by nine lines of text appealing to the citizens of the United States and noting that Governor-General Leonard Woods had created the American Guardian Association to keep the children from "vagabondage or immoral exploitation." Then follows two columns of news articles reprinted from the N.Y. Evening World and the Boston Evening Transcript, printed on each side of a picture of the children with the caption title, "Group of children of American blood being cared for and educated by the American Guardian Association of Manila." Major Gen. Woods was determined to "solve the problem of the care and education of 18,000 neglected or abandoned American mestizo, or mixed-blood children in the Philippines...." A few splits along old fold lines and some shallow chipping, not affecting the text. No listings found on OCLC or elsewhere.
