Society for Uniform Adoption Created
December 22, 1948
Los Angeles (UPI) — A nationwide organization to obtain uniform adoption laws in all states of the United States was announced here Tuesday.
Georgia Tann, executive director of the Tennessee Children's Home Society at Memphis, Tenn., was chosen as president of the group which will be known as the Adopted Children's Association of America.
"We are bitterly opposed to having children kept unnecessarily in boarding homes and are working for their placement in adopted homes," Miss Tann said, "It is our plan to obtain uniform adoption laws throughout the United States to make it possible to place children from one state for adoption in another."
