Excerpt from Administration of the First Federal Child-Labor Law

The child-labor Division of the Children's Bureau was organized to administer the United States child-labor act, which became effective September 1, 1917. Approximately nine months later (june 3, 1918) the act was declared unconstitutional, so that the work of the divi sion in this field terminated at that time.l Subsequent to June 3, some general inspections and investigations were made by the divi sion under the statutory power of the Children's Bureau to investi gate the employment of children. At the request of the War Labor Policies Board and the Department of War, it also undertook to make the inspections necessary to determine whether contractors were observing the clause with reference to the employment of children which was ordered inserted in all Army and other war contracts. An investigation of the employment of children in shipyards was also made by the division at the request of the Industrial Division of the Emergency Fleet Corporation. A report of this work, which ex tended over less than two years, is here presented in the order in which it was undertaken.
