The Settlement as a Social Laboratory

By Walter Leo Solomon

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1915

The author describes how the twenty-six year old settlement movement has served as an incubator as well as a source of innovation in social programs and progressive legislation and lobbying efforts. For example, the playground movement and the boy's club both grew out of settlement organizations' efforts to improve the situation of their largely impoverished immigrant clientele.
