SOMERS, GERALD G.
THIS FORD FOUNDATION SPONSORED RESEARCH PROJECT CONCENTRATED ON EVALUATING AND REPORTING ON PROGRAMS ESTABLISHED UNDER THE AREA REDEVELOPMENT ACT OF 1961 TO RETRAIN AND RELOCATE UNEMPLOYED WORKERS IN FOUR DEPRESSED AREAS OF WEST VIRGINIA.

THIS UNDERTAKING, TOGETHER WITH CLOSELY RELATED RESEARCH ON THE EFFECTS OF NEW PLANTS AND PUBLIC WORKS RELOCATION PROJECTS, AND EXPERIMENTAL RETRAINING PROGRAMS FOR OLDER WORKERS, IS BEING CONTINUED IN THE CENTER FOR STUDIES IN VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION, ESTABLISHED BY A FIVE-YEAR GRANT TO THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN BY THE FORD FOUNDATION.
