The grant-in-aid that I received from the Rockefeller Archives Center in the spring 2008 facilitated greatly research for my dissertation on the Survey of Race Relations on the Pacific Coast, 1923-1925. My dissertation examines the formation of the Survey of Race Relations (SRR) and the influence religious reformers and philanthropists, and especially John D. Rockefeller, Jr., had in its formation. More broadly, I focus on the religious reform movements of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century and the ways in which they fused Social Gospel reform agendas with a new internationalist and anti-racist social agenda.
