Bosworth, daughter of a bank president, grew up in Illinois, graduated from Wellesley College in 1907, and was a social worker. She worked for a number of settlement houses and participated in surveys of workers' living conditions, including the Women's Educational and Industrial Union survey (1907-1909) of incomes and expenditures of women workers, the results of which she published as The Living Wage of Women Workers; a survey (1911) of available housing in Philadelphia, which she later published as Housing Conditions in Main Line Towns; and an investigation (1914) of living costs, under the auspices of the Survey Committee of the Cleveland Foundation.
