Miss Cutler & the Case of the Resurrected Horse
University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines the works of Charity Organization Society social workers with the so-called “unhelpable” category of poor in London. It explains that the poor in this category appeared to be often ungrateful and overly demanding and COS caseworkers were often disdainful and dismissive in dealing with them. This chapter also mentions that charity exchanges in this category bordered on the aggressive and COS visitors often made it a point of discrediting and demolishing their fanciful aspirations.

Keywords:   unhelpable poor, social workers, Charity Organization Society, London, caseworkers, fanciful aspirations
