Minor Contributes To The Deliquency of Minors

Posted By on 07.15.10 at 07:33 AM

The Duluth New Tribune, January 9, 1910. Societies for the prevention of cruelty to animals came before societies for prevention of cruelty to children, the latter were a direct outgrowth of the former, and for quite a while there was considerable institutional overlap, per this tragic little bit of Edwardiana. Note the strange mixture of sympathy and moral revulsion addressed toward an eight-year-old victim of sustained sexual abuse. It's not at all unusual to see the newspapers apply the term "seduction" to the rape of pre-teen children in this era.
