Information about Alice Griffith : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

Can you tell me where I can find information about Alice Griffith and her involvement in early San Francisco housing.

I know a little bit about a lot of these questions and since no one else has answered them I'll tell you the little I do know. Alice Griffith opened up a kind of humanitarian clinic on the 1700 block of Stockton Street near Filbert for low income people. I'm not really all that sure what you'd call such a clinic today because that clinic was involved in all kinds of humanitarian endeavers specializing in helping the poor, the sick, the children, the elderly, and their living conditions in the tenements. I don't know if there is anything around here comparable to it today but perhaps if Alice were still here today Gavin Newson would help her open up a clinic for the homeless.

There was an article about Alice Griffith and her involvement in the Telegraph Hill Neighborhood Center in SF Image Magazine (part of the Sunday paper) on October 14, 1990. If you would like a copy, let me know and I will PDF you a copy.
