The Beginnings of the Silver School of Social Work

By Deborah Shapiro (GSAS ’16)

Happy Social Work Month! Did you know that the Silver School of Social Work began with a dentist?  The former dentist opened Youth House in 1944 as a temporary residence for children in juvenile detention. Within a few years, the House began offering field instruction to pre-professional social work students from NYU.

Podell’s career has taken him from roles as an editor at Playboy, to creating advertising campaigns for movies, to lobbyist, lawyer, and author; but it’s his most recent achievement that makes a resume you won’t find from anyone else in the world: Al Podell has visited every country in the planet.
