The Council of Social Agencies of Los Angeles records consist of meeting minutes, reports, and correspondence and memorandums,
1929-1947, created and collected by this welfare organization. The minutes are primarily those of the Executive Committee,
and describe the higher level administrative activites of the Council. The reports consist of summaries of the activities
of the various Council divisions, as well as research reports produced by these divisions on such topics as Los Angeles social
agencies, social welfare organizations, and social conditions.
Founded in 1929, the Council of Social Agencies was charged with promulgating and promoting studies, plans and programs that
would provide information on Los Angeles' social welfare programs and to coordinate the activities of its membership, social
welfare agencies in the city doing charitable and relief work. In 1944, the Council changed its name to the Welfare Planning
Council of Metropolitan Los Angeles.
