John R. Logan is Professor of Sociology and Director of the S4 initiative at Brown University. For several years, Dr. Logan has been gathering data on neighborhood change and individual mobility in U.S. cities in the period 1880-1920. The Albany People and Neighborhoods project (http://maps.s4.brown.edu/website/albany/index.html)shows the extraordinary amount of information that is available about neighborhoods, including historical maps, demographic characteristics of small areas, and lists of people who lived there. Another webpage, New York City History (http://www.s4.brown.edu/1920/index.html), reports on a project that has traced individual residents over time to see how their families, work, and neighborhoods changed between 1900 and 1920. A much larger project underway is mapping 39 cities in 1880 using full-count census data (Urban Transition Historical GIS Project, http://www.s4.brown.edu/utp).
