Jacob A. Riis

Anyone interested in Riis as a reformer should find James Lane, Jacob A. Riis and the American City (Port Washington, N.Y.: Kennikat Press, 1974), an invaluable work that succeeds Louise Ware's pioneering but adulatory, Jacob A. Riis: Police Reporter, Reformer, Useful Citizen ( New York: Appleton-Century, 1938). At this writing, the most recent consideration of Riis as a photographer is Sally Stein, "Making Connections with the Camera", Afterimage, May 1983, pp. 9-16. Alexander Alland , Jacob A. Riis: Photographer & Citizen (Millerton, N.Y.: Aperture, 1974), is a necessary companion to any work by or about Riis. It is also the accessible and invaluable presentation of Riis's photography. Rune Hassner, Jacob A. Riis: Reporter reed kamera i New Yorks slum ( Stockholm: Norstedt and Soners, 1970), is a valuable study with a selective bibliography. An intriguing reading of Riis as a photographer is J. Riis Owre, "Jacob A. Riis: Photographer in Spite of Himself", American Scandinavian Review 55 ( March 1967): 48-55. No reader should ignore I. N. Phelps Stokes six-volumed The Iconography of Manhattan Island. 1498*1909 ( 1915- 1928; reprint, New York: Arno Press, 1967). For a photographic essay of Manhattan's history, see Charles Lockwood, Manhattan Moves Uptown ( Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1976). The reader should also refer to John A. Kouwenhoven , The Columbia Historical Portrait of New York ( New York: Doubleday, 1953). Although Riis appended population statistics to How the Other Half Lives, the reader should also look at John Billing, Vital Statistics of New York City and Brooklyn Covering a Period of Six Years and Ending May 31, 1890 ( Washington, D.C.: Government Printing Office, 1891). For discussions of urban resources, James Reynolds, Civic Bibliography of Greater New York ( New York: Charities Publication Committee, 1911), and W. H. Tolman and W. Hull, Handbook of Sociological Information with Especial Reference to New York City ( New York: City Vigilance League, 1894), are richly rewarding. The problematic nature of Riis's concerns about ethnicity and Jewishness has been examined by a number of writers; central to my interests are Jeffrey Gurock, "Jacob A. Riis: Christian Friend or Missionary Foe? Two Jewish Views", American Jewish History 71 ( September 1981): 29-47, and Richard Tuerk, "Jacob Riis and the Jews", New York Historical Society Quarterly 63 ( July 1979): 179-99. I found immensely useful Sam Bass Warner 's Editor's Introduction to How the Other Half Lives ( Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1970), and Donald Bigelow's Introduction to the Sagamore Press edition of How the Other Half Lives, and Francesco Cordasco's Introduction to Jacob Riis Revisited: Poverty and the Slum in Another Era ( Garden City,
