Institute of Social and Religious Research Series, 1929-1930

Scope and content:

This series contains correspondence, notes, reports, schedules, and printed material pertaining to Warburton's field study of coal mining villages in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Illinois in 1929 and a rural-industrial county in Georgia in 1930. Warburton was one of several investigators sent out to small industrial villages to study the churches and their roles in the villages. Though researchers were supposed to concentrate on churches, Warburton devoted much attention to social and economic conditions in the villages. Consequently, there is some revealing descriptive and statistical information on the villages Warburton visited. There is also printed material from the United Mine Workers.
