Gumbert School for Delinquent Girls

I just added some transcriptions from newspapers ranging from 1925-1961 on the Gumbert School for Delinquent Girls to my wonderful Pittsburgh Old Newspaper Project.  This site is only possible through the many hours of volunteer work contributed so we genealogy buffs can learn more about out past and our beloved little steel city, Pittsburgh in Allegheny Co, PA.

Reading the articles can be quite entertaining.  Funny how I never considered a girls' school dedicated to the purpose of housing females inmates fresh from juvenile court to be "living a luxurious life" as one of the articles reports.


Ahh, genealogy.   Another side trip in to past with the written word.  How interesting the last article in 1961 asks "Is rehabilitation worth the cost?"

A special thanks to Lynne B for all her hard work!
