<== To Home Page || To 1930 Keepers Graduation || To Next Matrons List Page ==>
The 1930 DOC booklet's listing reflects the then secondary status of female custodial staffers. The matrons were not even included in the booklet's title. For this 2005 Women’s History presentation, we "corrected" that oversight digitally on the booklet cover image -- a bit of historical revisionism! Nor were they mentioned in the Page 3 introduction (see To All Prison Keepers text box on the right) that stressed how seniority strictly determined salary.
But, while that introduction cited seven pay grades, from $1,769 to $2,220, a glance at the matrons’ pay reveals their salaries stopped at the next-to-the-bottom rung -- $1,920 -- regardless of seniority.
Male keepers on the job more than 15 years had moved up the salary ladder, not the matrons. Example: the 30 most senior men, appointment dates from 1883 through 1908, drew the top pay grade: $2,220. The 7 most senior women, appointment dates from 1896 through 1908, were still stuck at the second lowest pay level: $1,920.
ANOTHER 2005 WOMEN'S HISTORY PROJECT
Freddie Wallace-Rakis' beautifully photographed and creatively designed set of 5 photo montage posters (each 13 x 19 inches) that DOC printed and distributed to its facilities for wall display to celebrate 2005 Women's History Month has been converted and reduced by NYCHS into a PDF file with downloadable and printable pages (each 5.5 x 8.5 inches). A cover page with the 5 montages in miniature has been added for this NYCHS presentation of the DOC posters. Each miniature montage on the NYCHS version's cover page is linked to its respective 5.5 x 8.5 DOC poster page. The 6-page PDF file is 700K. It can be saved to 3.5 inch floppy disk. Access the PDF (Adobe Acrobat) file by clikcing the above composite image of the cover page of the NYCHS version.
