Using the master's tools: The Atlanta Sociological Laboratory and American sociology, 1896-1924
Abbreviated Journal Title
The Chicago School of Sociology (1915-1930) is often referred to as the first American school of sociology. This investigation challenges that claim and proposes that, possibly, the Atlanta Sociological Laboratory (1896-1924) deserves the designation of being America's first school of sociology. Martin Bulmer's (1985) model of a school is applied to the Atlanta Sociological Laboratory and the findings indicate, per Bulmer's prerequisites, that the Atlanta Sociological Laboratory qualifies for school status nearly 20 years prior to the development of the Chicago School of Sociology.
