A housing survey of Columbia, Missouri
Text from page 2: "The following thesis is an investigation into one phase of the social life of Columbia, -- the conditions, of housing. The problem of the investigation is whether the people of Columbia are properly housed. A house to house survey was made in typical sections of the city for the purpose of getting the facts. If we shall discover that conditions are not satisfactory, we shall ask the question, why? Also, we shall seek to know what can be done to make conditions better, and what limits must be recognized in the possibilities of improving the housing situation, for there is much difference in advocating an Utopia and advocating something reasonably possible."
