Manual of Procedures, Sociological Section, Ford Motor Company, circa 1946

Summary

Employees of Ford Motor Company's Sociological Department made unannounced visits to evaluate the cleanliness and safety of an employee's household. An investigator would use a form, like the one found within this manual pictured here, to record how workers spent their money, if they sent their children to school, and ensure that they lived as organized, law-abiding American citizens.
