Solomon's accomplishments were many, but she is best remembered as a pioneer in creating a profession of psychiatric social work which evolved into today's clinical social work. In this collection of articles and background essays, interspersed with selections from Solomon's oral reminiscences about her career, we find just how determined she had to be in a world where married women of her class dabbled in charitable work but had no expectation of entering and changing the professional world. Articles and transcripts of interviews describe Solomon's unique partnership with her husband and co-author Harry C. Solomon, her work in the Boston Psychopathic Hospital from 1916 to the 1920s, her work as co-author of the landmark Syphilis of the Innocent: A Study of the Effects of Syphilis on the Family and the Community, her development into a teacher and the author of one of the first standard texts on psychiatric social work, and her emergence as a research leader and role model.
