Excerpt from Longshoremen and Their Homes: The Story of a Housing Case Study Conducted Under the Auspices of Greenwich House Situated as it is in a neighborhood blighted by some of New York City's worst slums, Greenwich House naturally has sought to do its bit for the housing movement. As its contribution the Settlement offers this study of housing conditions among the longshoremen living in its neighborhood, made possible through a generous grant of funds from the Pierce Foundation.
To Mr. Clarence Woolley, of the Pierce Foundation, goes our sincere appreciation of his very material interest and aid. We are also indebted to Miss Helen Alfred, Executive Director of the National Public Housing Conference, and Mr. George Uhl, of the New York City Housing Authority, for helpful advice and encouraging interest; to the Reverend Daniel Doug herty, of St. Veronica's School, and the Reverend Monsignor John J. Hickey, of St. Joseph's Parish, to the Clyde Mallory Lines, the Savannah Lines, the Morgan Line, the White Star Cunard Line, and the Anchor Line, for their friendly assistance in securing names of longshoremen; to the Waterfront Research Committee, for information about the longshore industry; and to the many longshoremen who assisted us.
