(1916–1995) Carel Bailey Germain, scholar, teacher, writer, and theoretician, profoundly altered the shape of social work practice. A native of San Francisco, Germain was a devoted naturalist and was active in the Campfire Girls throughout her girlhood. Her love of and interest in nature had major significance for the future development of social work practice theory. She began her career in social work upon completing her BA degree at the University of California at Berkeley. Eventually, she and her family moved to the East Coast, and she returned to school, receiving her MSW from Columbia University in 1961.
