FOREWORD
THE American Youth Commission was organized in September, 1935, by the American Council on Education, a non-governmental group that had spent more than a year considering possible means of studying the problems of youth. Sixteen men and women were selected for membership on the Commission, and were asked by the Council to:
consider all the needs of American youth and appraise the facilities and resources for serving these needs;
recommend eventually some procedures and programs which seem to be most effective in solving the problems of youth; and finally to
popularize and promote desirable plans of action through conferences, publications, and demonstrations.
The membership of the Commission follows:
Newton D. Baker, Cleveland, Chairman
Owen D. Young, New York City, Vice-Chairman
Miriam Van Waters, Framingham, Mass., Secretary
Will W. Alexander, Atlanta, Washington
Ralph Budd, Chicago
Lotus D. Coffman, Minneapolis
Dorothy Canfield Fisher, Arlington, Vt.
Willard E. Givens, Washington
Henry I. Harriman, Boston
Robert M. Hutchins, Chicago
George Johnson, Washington
Chester H. Rowell, San Francisco
William F. Russell, New York City
