Kellogg, Paul Underwood


This folder contains materials created/collected by Paul Kellogg, editor of the Survey magazine, 1909-1952, and an active social reformer. Paul Kellogg conceived of the Survey as a broadly educational enterprise operating ""along the borders of research, journalism, and the general welfare."" It was to be an open forum, limited only by the facts. The emphasis of the Survey was on first-hand inquiry and investigation, and regular procedure involved submitting controversial articles in draft form to concerned parties, considering suggested revisions, rechecking disputed sections, and offering opportunity for rebuttal. Kellogg named the factors that had characterized the Survey's working scheme since 1912: swift research, visualization, human interest, things of the spirit, public concern, and free discussion. This folder specifically includes the chairman’s handbook, notes, Paul’s schedules, memos, telegrams, photocopied newspaper clippings of the conference and Paul Kellogg with wife Helen Hall, and speech notes. Also included as correspondence with individuals such as A. L. Foster (Chicago Urban League), J. E. Sproul (The National YMCA), and Elizabeth Christman (National Women’s Trade Union League of America).
