The life story of L. Emmett Holt will be eagerly read by a large number of physicians and pediatricians and also by those who are interested in the development and progress of child welfare. Holt was outstanding. He was not only a leader but an inspiration to his colleagues, as well as to social service workers, nurses and myriads of mothers who reared their babies according to the directions given in his book "The Care and Feeding of Children."

Holt was born March 4, 1855 in Webster, N. Y., a few miles from Rochester. Both of his parents were of New England origin. In his early youth Holt worked on the farm; he fed the stock, milked three cows and cleaned out the stalls before breakfast and did the same chores in the evening. Holt's mother, Sabrah Curtice Holt, is described as a woman of deep convictions and considerable force.
