    Abstract

    One part of this paper is methodological, or bibliographical in nature; I argue that a body of evidence that scholars have dismissed for a century as useless may in fact be very valuable. The evidence to which I refer is data on Jewish literacy found in the 1897 Census of the Russian Empire. A second part of this paper is substantive in nature; in it I offer an interpretation of a crucial social pattern observed in the literacy data.
