The Ford Foundation played a key role in identifying and responding to the nation's urban crisis during the long 1960s. As ever the Ford attacked the problem along multiple fronts, simultaneously plying policymakers while investing resources in programs for the poor and displaced as well as in vanguard intellectual movements at leading research universities. Believing that there was a direct connection between ideas and action, and that American research universities were the best site for the generation of usable knowledge on the city and its inhabitants, the foundation bet the future of the metropolis on the Joint Center for Urban Studies of MIT and Harvard University.
