This is unrelated to my Pittsburgh family as far as I know but I thought I'd share it for anyone searching for information about their ancestor who may have been associated with the Boys' Industrial Home.
There is a collection of books published on the University of Pittsburgh's site. This link takes you to the section of the 1946/47 book containing photos (plates) of the students and faculty, for example.
A search by author reveals books from the years 1920/21, 1928/29, 1929/30, 1930/31, 1931/32, 1932/33, 1933/34, 19335/36, 1937/38, 1938/39, 1939/40, 1940/41, 1941/42, 1942/43, 1943/44, 1944/45, 1946/47. Perhaps more will be added if they are available. Click here to see these.
Their entire site is filled with Pittsburgh's history. Visit http://digital.library.pitt.edu/pittsburgh/ for more.
