This historical review recounts the case of Emily Thompson, a New York City child abused in 1871, in which Henry Bergh, an animal rights advocate, intervened. The perpetrator was found guilty but the child was sent back to the same abusive home. The case is seen as seminal in the early history of the child protection movement. (DB)
