The Lost Letter Technique and Attitudes toward Black Militancy and Integration: Houston and Philadelphia Examples.
Farrell, Walter C., Jr.; And Others
Western Journal of Black Studies, v1 n4 p230-304 Dec 1977
The "lost letter" method was used to measure White and Black attitudes toward Black revolutionary and integration organizations. Whites were found to be less likely than Blacks to send on "lost" letters when the letters were addressed to radical-sounding organizations than when addressed to a randomly named individual. (GC)
