Social Ethics Museum in Emerson

The Social Ethics Museum on the second floor of Emerson Hall is now open to the University. The museum is a collection of graphical material, photographs, diagrams, charts, and models, to illustrate social progress and experiments.

It contains the exhibit made by the German Government, at the St. Louis Exposition, of the German insurance system, together with the exhibits of many German industrial establishments, and a duplicate of the exhibit of the United States Bureau of Labor concerning wages, strikes, and trades unions. The museum also contains illustrations of many forms of poor-relief, improved dwellings, municipal industries, and problems of immigration; and offers opportunities for many special studies of social progress.
