This uncritical acceptance of an image without substance is echoed in the writings of Rolf Lindner (1996), Edward Shils (1991), Everett C. Hughes (1964), and Lee Harvey (1987). E. Park repeated these views in his writings, too. Thus in 1924 he scathingly dismissed all social investigations done by applied sociologists—whom he subsumed under the category of “social workers”—when he wrote: “Generally speaking, we have had nothing 34 mary jo deegan that could be called social research, bearing on the tasks of social workers.

C. Hughes correctly interpreted Park’s commitment to social reform as integral to Park’s entire system of thought and action.
