Evening Recreation Centers

by Edward W. Stitt - 1911

There has been a great tendency during the past few years toward the urbanization of our population. Statistics show that while in 1860 only 16 per cent dwelt in cities, in 1900 the number had increased to 33 per cent, and the census estimates of the present year prove that at least soper cent of our population dwell in crowded cities. The figures thus far show that1some cities have more than doubled their population in the past decade. This tremendous urban development at the expense of village or farm life, has gradually been receiving the attention of educators and sociologists. It is a civic problem of great importance to determine just what recreative advantages should be provided by the cities for those who are forced to live in congested neighborhoods.
