The Preface notes that this is "the first time in the history of the Conference that the question of financing our State institutions has been considered." Better funding methods for state institutions (then supported solely through "corporation taxes") are needed, as "public sentiment is demanding more adequate care of the tuberculous, insane and epileptic, as well as the defective, delinquent, and pauper classes."
