Survey Associates


This folder contains materials from editorial files created by Survey Associaties, Inc., publishers of the Survey family of magazines. The Survey had roots in several other magazines which were concerned with philanthropy, including the Charities Review, Charities and the Commons, and Jewish Charities. From 1912 the Survey was published weekly, but because weekly publication was prohibitively expensive and because of a constant clash between readers seeking technical material and readers seeking an overall view of philanthropic fields, the Survey split into two publications: the Survey Midmonthly and the Survey Graphic.The Survey Midmonthly was formally founded in June, 1922, as a digest of social work. The Survey Graphic was a magazine of "social interpretation" directed at people who were concerned with social and economic problems. It focused on areas of industrial relations, health, education, international relations, housing, race relations, consumer education, and related fields. This folder contains editorial materials from the "Calling America" Series, a series of 14 special issues of the Survey Graphic, published between 1939 and 1948. The series was conceived as "variants of books, reports, and periodicals" and built around a single theme." The specific issue covered in this folder is "Color: Unfinished Business of Democracy," edited by Alain Locke, which focused on issues facing African Americans and other People of Color in the United States.
