Category:  Architecture
Born/Started:    1888
Description:    Lucille Milner was a St. Louis-born lobbyist and member of the Missouri Children´s Code Commission. She lobbied the legislature to adopt child welfare laws and coordinated grass-roots efforts that resulted in some of the most advanced child welfare legislation in the country. Eventually, the state legislature passed 25 of the Commission´s recommendations, establishing a state Division of Child Hygiene. Missouri became one of only three states with compulsory education for mentally retarded children. The legislation was a model that was used nationally.
