Abstract (summary)

The following is a final graduate project consisting of a collection of related papers---in the form of an urban studies manual for high school teachers---based on the underlying premise that a subject can be learned from examining various perspectives. In this specific instance, two major American cities, New York and Chicago, are studied by examining the biographies of famous men and women who flourished in the two cities during the twentieth century. These cities can be taught in conjunction with the ethics, ideals and results---whether positive or negative---of the biographies contained herein. The occupations of those discussed in this "manual" (derived from secondary sources) consist of sociologist, feminist, writer, crime syndicate leader, mayor, lawyer, composer, urban activist, newspaper publisher, public works builder, labor leader, politician, church pastor, philanthropist, poet, family planner, broadcaster, author, and real estate developer.
