The Administration (1929-1959; 5 linear feet) series includes documents pertaining to the establishment of the fund, annual reports, and minutes and resolutions of the board of trustees. Additionally this series includes reports from the field received by Norton from Child Health Division staff members. The three largest files in this series correspond to the three divisions within the CFM: the Research Laboratory, the Child Health Division, and the Child Guidance Division. Each of these files includes such documentation as annual reports, correspondence of division directors, and various other reports and memoranda. The Research Laboratory is the smallest of these, but the researcher should note that its director Icie Macy-Hoobler donated her professional files to the library separately, and included with them are her CFM papers.
The Child Guidance Division subseries, in addition to annual reports and correspondence of one of its directors Maud Watson, is noteworthy for the correspondence exchanged between Norton and its other director John M. Dorsey. Dorsey was a distinguished psychiatrist and university educator who wrote long and thoughtful letters to Norton about child guidance and the kinds of programs needed to deal with the stresses confronting the state's young people, particularly urban youth.
