Description

The establishment of the Birth Control League of Massachusetts took place in response to the prosecution of Van Kleeck Allison in 1916. The League reorganized as the Family Welfare Foundation under the leadership of Dr. Evangeline Young in 1919, but disbanded in 1920, only to reorganize in 1928 in defense of Dr. Antoinette Konikow. The League acted under a number of names over the years, eventually becoming the Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts.
