APPRECIATION of Miss Edith Leach's wartime work has been warmly expressed in personal letters to her from the following leaders in British industry:
LORD INVERFORTH ("the Napoleon of Commerce"); SIR STEPHENSON KENT, SIR JAMES MCKECHNIE, Director, Vickers, Ltd.
MR. J W. MAWSON (Thomas Mawson & Sons, Town Planners, London, and formerly of New York), formerly Town Planning Adviser to the Greek Government, writes:
"In five years of active research work into Civic and Social problems in many large cities, I have never come in contact with any practical Sociologist who showed such a comprehensive grasp of her subject, or who displayed so much initiative as Miss Leach.
"The extent of her knowledge on questions of Housing, Sanitation, and Economic problems in connection with wages and the cost of living must of necessity be the result of many years' highly trained observation and practical work."
MR. NORMAN COLEMAN, President, Loyal Legion of Loggers and Lumbermen, 207 Alisky Building, Portland, Oregon, writes:
"In carrying on the work for us in the Inland Empire you have shown unfailing courage and good humor; and you have shown unusual resourcefulness in the face of varying and perplexing difficulties. ... Please be assured that we appreciate the fine spirit you have shown in your dealings with employers and employed and their wives and daughters. We hope that your native powers and your long experience will bear fruit in other fields of social service."
MRS. WILLIAM PALMER LUCAS, 1919 Octavia Street, San Francisco, California, Writer and Lecturer, Director of the National League of Women's Service, The Regional Director of the League of Women Voters, State Chairman on International Relations Committee of the National League of Women Voters, writes:
"Miss Edith Leach immediately impresses one as a woman of wide experience and rich background of human contacts and observation. ... Her human sympathetic touch makes her lectures on sociological and industrial problems, in which she has wide experience, of vital and compelling interest." [page 3]
