Résumé :
Studies the industrial housing reform movement in America, 1900-1919, a combined effort by social workers, philanthropic and labor organizations, and government officials to improve housing conditions for industrial workers. During World War I the program was carried forward by the U.S. Shipping Board and its Emergency Fleet Corporation's Bureau of Town Planning and Design. Szylvian focuses on the work of the EFC, which produced the bulk of war housing towns. She argues that the most important forces in war housing policy-making and implementation, Congress, representatives of the shipbuilding industry, and officials from the U.S. Shipping Board, were often indifferent or, in some cases, even hostile to the reform-inspired aims of planning and design professionals and their allies among social workers and journalists. ;
