DescriptionThe article discusses the founding and early history of the Auxiliary, stating: "In 1890 the Women's Auxiliary Board of Lady Managers was formally established. Their task? According to the Faculty of Physic it was 'to assist in the charity work for the free patients.' Free patients were better known as the poor. In an era where Medicare and Medicaid did not exist only a small number of institutions, like University Hospital, provided care for the poor of the city. Physicians donated their time, but money was not abundant. The auxiliary began holding benefits and other fundraisers." The date is presumed to be 1987 because the content concerns the 100th anniversary of the Auxiliary, which was founded in 1887. There is no publication information.
