The Early History of Program Evaluation and the Department of Labor

Author

Abstract

My contact with the Department of Labor began more than 40 years ago, so it is a little alarming to consider that the Department is merely 100 years old! These remarks are addressed to those early days in the history of program evaluation 40 years ago, days that were both challenging and, in retrospect, more influential than anyone in the Department imagined.
