Sees Disappearance of Jewish Quarters in U.S.

(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Passing of the Jewish quarter centered at Maxwell street, is predicted in “The Ghetto,” published by the University of Chicago Press. The author is Louis Wirth, former member of the sociology department at Tulane University.

Wirth’s predictions for other large cities are based upon an intensive study of the Chicago district. His work was financed by the Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial fund.
