Plan a Study of Immigrants
The Carnegie Corporation of New York announced yesterday [April 15, 1918] that it has undertaken to finance a study of the methods by which the foreign population of this country is being Americanized. This work will begin at once and it is believed that at least a year and a half will be required for its completion. Allen T. Burns of Cleveland, Survey Director of the Cleveland Foundation, will have charge of the inquiry, assisted by an advisory council consisting of Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, Professor John Graham of Cambridge, and Dr. John M. Glenn, Director of the Sage Foundation.
