Housing Conditions in the City of Saint Paul

Wilder's first research report, published in 1917, presents the findings of survey of housing conditions in Saint Paul. It reports that housing in sections of the city is "wholly unsuited for human habitation" and "a menace to the health, safety and privacy of thousands of Saint Paul people." The report includes numerous photographs. The findings in the report led to the enactment of the first Saint Paul housing ordinance in March 1918.
