This collection consists of theses written by USC students from 1910 through the 1930s within the Economics department and
the newly founded Sociology Department.
This collection of student papers and theses appear to have been the provenance of prominent USC sociology professor, Dr.
Emory S. Bogardus, who helped establish one of the first sociology departments at an American university (USC) in 1915. Before
1915, sociology topics were taught as part of the Economics department, as evidenced by the papers in this collection. Many
of the papers written before 1915 were submitted as part of an Economics Seminar (various years) taught by Dr. Bogardus and/or
Dr. Rockwell Hunt. Later papers were submitted for Sociology or Psychology classes.
