Excerpt

This book is a part of the Inventory of Published Research in Marriage and the Family of the Minnesota Family Study Center in more than a formal administrative sense. The work was begun at Cornell University as a subsidiary part of a program to develop new techniques for measuring characteristics of families. However, it was Reuben Hill who suggested its expansion and suggested that I apply to the National Institute of Mental Health for funds to do so. The first phase of the work was subsequently carried out with support from that institute under Grant No. M-5147A. After I joined the faculty of the University of Minnesota, the work was supported by the Minnesota Family Study Center, in part with funds made available by a grant from the Institute for Life Insurance.

Many people have assisted me in the task of searching for and abstracting the family measurement literature. First drafts of a number of the abstracts were originally prepared by students at Cornell University in my research practicum on methods for studying the family. In revising these student-prepared abstracts, I have in all cases read the original work on which they report in its entirety, so that any errors which appear are my responsibility. The work at Cornell was greatly facilitated by the diligence and skill of my research assistant Miss Janice Feldtmose.
