Title A sociological survey of the Murray community
Date 1937-08
Description AIMS AND PURPOSES OF THE STUDY The general purpose of this study is to make an analysis of contemporary social life In Murray, its population, its folkways and Its Institutions* It is hoped that the author has been able to portray a true picture of life in the community, SCOPE AND METHOD Most community studies have their limitations. The accurate coverage of every detail of the life of any community is a difficult and expensive task. This study must of necessity miss many details, several of which are extremely important, The limits of the study in a territorial way are defined by the actual city limits of Murray. Much of the material contained in this study Is the result of observation and conversation. While objective facts and figures have been used whenever possible, an accurate cross section of community life must depend partially upon what the Investigator sees and hears. Difficulty was encountered in considering Murray as a unit when it is really part of a metropolitan area. Juvenile court records had to "be carefully observed as to street and number; the designation of address as Murray was not always accurate from the viewpoint of this study* Representative opinions were gathered In seemingly casual street corner conversations with selection only as to the occupation of the person being interviewed.
