I was astounded to find this item in a flat at an auction filled with industrial items. The author, Dr. Dorothy Bocker, wrote this this important booklet, but she also was researcher for Margaret Sanger. Lay people interviewed the patients about income, education, family size, and health, but if a woman didn't have a feasible health problem by law the clinic had to decline to treat her. Dr. Bocker distributed these booklet to other doctors whom she required to sign his or her name on a page for it. This one was #9949, signed by Dr. K.E. Schenefren.The booklet measures 6" x 9-1/4" and has 31 pages including several photographs of the methods and information on their values and failures. A very scarce collectible.
