Promotional and fundraising brochure for the National Save-a-Life League, in particular the camps they held for children whose family members have committed suicide:

"But in the sad cases where that tragedy has occurred, solace and comfort must be given to those who have been left behind in an effort to prevent a further tragedy within the family. ¶ And it is the child who is often most sensitive, who feels the blow most because he cannot understand. For him, camp is the greatest blessing at this time. It gives him new fresh soil for his roots to grow in -- that his soul may blossom forth happy and strong again!"

Founded in 1906 by Reverend Harry M. Warren, the National Save-a-Life League is considered the first suicide prevention organization in the United States.
