The personal histories of each resident admitted to the Beloit Industrial School for Girls from May 6, 1889 - July 20, 1935 are displayed here in five volumes. The Women's Christian Temperance Union opened the School in 1888, but the State of Kansas ran the institution from 1889 until 2009. Details recorded include the name, family history, birthdate, birthplace, physical description, religion and education of each girl as well as the offense committed, admission and release dates, and conditions of parole. The girls ranged in age from 8 to 16 years old.

Date: 1889 - 1935
