Abstract:The majority of the literature on American settlements focuses on Hull House, Henry Street Settlement, Chicago Commons, and South End House. Although these settlements had a significant influence on city and often, national politics, they comprised only a small portion of the national settlement house community. Little emphasis has been placed on the smaller settlements that spanned the distance from New York to Los Angeles.
The dissertation examines the development of the Minneapolis settlement house community from 1897-1950. The Minneapolis settlement house movement existed in a somewhat typical middle range, middle-western city. As part of the examination, this disseration examines the conservative nature of the Minneapolis settlement houses and the role that social control played within the movement. Also examined is the conflict between the socialization function of the settlements and the altruistic motives of Minneapolis settlement leaders. The methodology used in this study is historical.
