Greater Birmingham Humane Society

In 1883, a young educator, Dr. John Herbert Phillips, came to Birmingham to direct the city’s floundering school system. Dr. Phillips realized that a well-rounded child must be taught humane values and compassion. To that end, he founded the Birmingham Humane Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children and Animals as well as the city’s first High School and Birmingham’s public library.
