The National Training School For Boys, located in what is now known as the Fort Lincoln area of Washington, D.C., was a Federal Government juvenile correctional institution for offenders under the age of seventeen. The school was governed by a board of trustees, appointed by the President of the United States, upon the recommendation of the Attorney General. The board was authorized, under certain conditions, to release inmates from District of Columbia before their terms had expired. They also had the power to parole boys from other districts of the United States, subject to the approval of the Attorney General.
