Excerpt from The Modern City Henry Ward Beecher says, that three great ele ments enter into the career of a great citizen, viz., that which his ancestry gives, that which opportunity gives; and that which his will develops. So, if human character is the camera of human development, then civic virtue. Will be just what the genius and Will of the people develop.
The proper solution of the many complex problems of modern city life, is the solution of the greatest questions of the century. They are as many and as varied, as are the vices and virtues of mankind.
