Description

The Serbian Aid Fund established the American Home for Jugoslav Children in 1923 at Slece, Croatia to provide a summer home for Jugoslav children whose fathers died in World War I. Madame Mabel S. Grouitch served as director of the home and Armstrong acted as secretary of the Home.

The subseries is arranged with correspondence in alphabetical order followed by miscellaneous materials in alphabetical order. The files document correspondence between Armstrong and other officials of the home and the day-to-day operation of the New York office. Grace Barnes ran the New York office, managing the collection of donations and gifts. Much of the correspondence with Madame Grouitch describes the work she performed in Yugoslavia.
