The Importance of Environmental Influences

by Charles Holley - 1916

The data presented in this part of the report were secured through personal visits to 32 homes in which adopted children had been reared.

The remaining 31 homes were represented by 39 adopted children. While the writer was gathering the information it was discovered that 7 of these children were the off-spring of relatives of the foster-parents.
