Immigration and the Future
NY, George H. Doran, (1920). A book on immigration, economics, and race relations by a woman who was known for her work on immigration, women's rights, and prison reform. By the time this book was published, Kellor, who had her law degree, had been secretary and treasurer of the New York State Immigration Commission; chief investigator for the Bureau of Industries and Immigration of New York State; managing director of the North American Civic League for Immigrants; and director of the National Americanization Committee. This copy is inscribed by Kellor to Joseph Mayper, "with appreciation and gratitude for many years [?] of cooperation with work for the unforsaken [?] and for the pleasure of a happy association together." Mayper was the editor for Kellor's Immigrants in America Review. Spine-dulled, slight wear to corners, would be near fine but for the clean separation of the text block from the boards, thus only a fair copy, but an excellent association copy and a scarce signature.
