United States has resulted in the study of various foreign groups settling in colonial days and their assimilation. Thus, Faust and Kuhns have written on early Swiss immigration ; Ford on the Scotch Irish ; Knauss, Kuhns and Rosenberger on the Pennsylvania Germans ; Louhi on the Delaware Finns ; Evjen on the Scandinavians ; Myers on tbe Irish ; and Hirsch on the Huguenots. Biographies of English colonial worthies in America have been fairly numerous. Those of John Robinson by Burgess, Roger Williams by Carpenter, Anne Hutchinson by Edith Curtis, of Governor Wentworth of New Hampshire by Mayo, Increase Mather by Murdock, of Governor Shirley of Massachussetts by Wood, and James Oglethorpe by Harriet Cooper are critical and not marred by the blind adulation or wholesale condemnation characterizing many earlier volumes of this nature. Far less than might be expected has been done on native relations. But four works of merit, King Philip's War by Ellis and Morris, The History of the Five Indian Nations by Colden, Sipe's The Indian Wars of Pennsylvania and Pound and Day's Johnson of the Mohawks have appeared. The subject offers great opportunity for pioneer work and cannot fail to receive adequate attention within our own generation. Several studies of the labor question have been made. Seybolt has surveyed the apprenticeship system of colonial New England and New York ; Geiser, Herrick and Mc Cormac, the institution of indentureship ; Ballagh, the servile regime of Virginia ; and Wright and Russell, the free negro. Surpassing all, however, is Jernegan's Laboring and Dependent Classes in Colonial America, a masterpiece in economic and social history. Colonial education and culture have not been overlooked. Oviatt and Dexter have written on Yale university in its first days, and Matthews on Harvard. Wroth's History of Printing in Colonial Maryland and Roden's The Cambridge Press, 1638-1692 have peculiar interest. Wright's Literary Culture in Early New England has gained an appreciative following.
