Tennessee Children's Home Society

by The Arches



Beulah George "Georgia" Tann (July 18, 1891 – September 15, 1950) was an American child trafficker who operated the Tennessee Children's Home Society, an adoption agency in Memphis, Tennessee. Tann used the unlicensed home as a front for her black market baby adoption scheme from the 1920s until a state investigation into numerous instances of adoption fraud being perpetrated by her closed the institution in 1950. Tann died of cancer before the investigation made its findings public. The Elmwood Cemetery has an area that is “Reserved for the Tennessee Children’s Home Society". You will see nothing but a grassy patch of ground. No markers here. Yet within this plot are buried 19 children who died under the supervision of Miss Tann. Hollywood actress Joan Crawford adopted her two daughters from Miss Tann, one of which passed away recently.
