Excerpt from Citizens in Industry
The service which Dr. Henderson rendered the cause of human welfare was largely in the field which this volume covers. True, his interests covered also the fields of penology and charity, but few men of our day have a more accurate knowledge of the conditions affecting the workingman. He was called repeatedly into service by his city and his state to help solve industrial problems as well as serving as the representative of the United States upon the International Prison Commission. His attitude to ward the problems of our industrial order was a re markable combination of the scientific spirit and warm personal sympathy. There are few men who have given themselves as generously or more intel ligently to the needs of their fellow-men, and his death was largely due to his efforts as chairman of a commission appointed by the Mayor of Chicago to relieve the condition of that city's unemployed.
