NATIONAL RESOURCES COMMITTEE

INTERIOR BUILDING

WASHINGTON

June 18, 1937.
The PRESIDENT,
The White House,

Washington, D.C.
MY DEAR MR. PRESIDENT:

We have the honor to transmit herewith a report on Technological Trends and Their Social Implications. Our Science Committee, including members designated by the National Academy of Sciences, the Social Science Research Council, and the American Council on Education, has prepared, through a special subcommittee headed by Dr. William F. Ogburn, the materials which comprise this report.

This document is the first major attempt to show the kinds of new inventions which may affect living and working conditions in America in the next 10 to 25 years. It indicates some of the problems which the adoption and use of these inventions will inevitably bring in their train. It emphasizes the importance of national efforts to bring about prompt adjustment to these changing situations, with the least possible social suffering and loss, and sketches some of the lines of national policy directed to this end. Sincerely yours,

HAROLD L, ICKES

Secretary of the Interior, Chairman HARRY H, WOODRING,

HARRY L. HOPKINS, Secretary of War.

Works Progress Administrator. HENRY A. WALLACE,

FREDERIC A. DELANO. Secretary of Agriculture.

CHARLES E. MERRIAM. DANIEL C. ROPER,
