Sociological Department Industrial Relations Scope and Content Note

Under the direction of its chief surgeon Richard Corwin, the company created a Sociological Department in 1901. The Sociological Department subgroup (1901-1915) contains reports detailing the activities of the department and its efforts to “better” the lives of its workers by offering lectures on such topics as hygiene, civics, politics, home economics, history and the dangers of communism as well as offering adult education classes and kindergartens for employees’ children.
