Text on back cover:

The Robert L. Stevens Fund For Municipal Research in Hoboken was established 18 months ago, as a memorial to Robert Livingston Stevens. Mrs. Robert L. Stevens has given $4,000 a year to be spent in co-operation with the people of Hoboken to "increase year after year the number of mothers and fathers who will take an interest in Hoboken's city government so that schools shall be progressively better, streets cleaner, recreation more enjoyable and health rates and civic ideals progressively higher."

During this period her representatives, (1) Co-operated with the tax commission, the boards of health and education, the woman's club, the board of trade; (2) Employed a nurse who visited 515 families in the interest of school children with physical defects needing attention, and 300 families in the interest of sick babies; (3) With the board of education held a dental hygiene exhibit; (4) Made the investigation which led to state-wide supervision of weights and measures; (5) Digested the laws and ordinances pertaining to the powers and duties of city officials; (6) Prepared a directory of charitable and civic agencies; (7) Gave services for the budget exhibit on which it spent $1,000; (8) Kept-the public informed as to community needs through newspaper statements, public statements to officials, conferences, churches, etc.

The Fund has issued postal cards and other bulletins to a mailing list of Hoboken citizens as follows:

"While there is not money enough to do the world's uplift work if we go about it in the wrong way, there is money to spare if we go about that uplift work in the right way. The money now being spent by charitable institutions in doing things that ought not to be done would more than suffice to set in motion, and keep in motion, educational forces to secure the spending of vastly greater sums in doing the right things efficiently. Our money will surely run out if we deal with results, not causes; if we confine our attention to cure, and neglect prevention. The money now being spent upon charity and education fails to do all the uplift work that our present information shows to be necessary because our philanthropists try to work in practical isolation without the co-operation of governmental agencies. Necessary, human uplift work will never be done if philanthropy keeps on trying to take the place of efficient government. On the other hand, whether our immediate interest be insanity, alcoholism, physical defects of school children, communicable diseases, or ignorance, there is a cheap way of gaining our heart's desire if we learn to use even a small part of the annual gifts to private philanthropy for harnessing our municipalities, our states, and our nation, to a programme for getting done what everybody sees ought to be done."

PREFACE
This directory is published to serve five purposes:

1Make accessible for ready reference a minimum of facts about the various churches, charitable, civic and educational organizations in Hoboken

2Serve as a means of bringing more closely into efficient co-operation those persons who are working for the welfare of Hoboken

3Increase the sympathetic support of uplift work

4Help workers and donors to discover needs not yet met and fields of effort not yet filled or entered

5Furnish through the name index a '' Who's Who'' in Hoboken's uplift work

To insure accuracy, a personal visit was made to the officers of each society, and facts concerning their organization were later submitted by letter, asking them to make such corrections, modifications, etc., as they considered necessary

back cover text:

The Robert L. Stevens Fund For Municipal Research in Hoboken was established 18 months ago, as a memorial to Robert Livingston Stevens. Mrs. Robert L. Stevens has given $4,000 a year to be spent in co-operation with the people of Hoboken to "increase year after year the number of mothers and fathers who will take an interest in Hoboken's city government so that schools shall be progressively better, streets cleaner, recreation more enjoyable and health rates and civic ideals progressively higher."

During this period her representatives, (1) Co-operated with the tax commission, the boards of health and education, the woman's club, the board of trade; (2) Employed a nurse who visited 515 families in the interest of school children with physical defects needing attention, and 300 families in the interest of sick babies; (3) With the board of education held a dental hygiene exhibit; (4) Made the investigation which led to state-wide supervision of weights and measures; (5) Digested the laws and ordinances pertaining to the powers and duties of city officials; (6) Prepared a directory of charitable and civic agencies; (7) Gave services for the budget exhibit on which it spent $1,000; (8) Kept-the public informed as to community needs through newspaper statements, public statements to officials, conferences, churches, etc.

The Fund has issued postal cards and other bulletins to a mailing list of Hoboken citizens as follows:

HEALTH NEEDS (particularly baby saving), Bulletins Nos. 5, 16, 10, 24, 30, 31

SCHOOL NEEDS, (medical inspection, etc.) Bulletins Nos. 10, 13, 14
