EDITOR'S INTRODUCTION

Scholars are no longer called upon to prove that the story of social progress is history. Nor is it necessary to apologize for discussing the promotion of social welfare through legislation: indeed, the modern point of view in all legislation is social. It is, therefore, profitable to review the history of social legislation in Iowa in order that we may see more clearly the steps that should be taken next. Thus the researches of Mr. Briggs in this volume on the History of Social Legislation in Iowa will serve both a scientific and a practical purpose.
