Abstract:

It is commonly believed that the planning concept of a Neighborhood Unit was the brain-child of Clarence A. Perry as published in 1929. However, the idea was formulated during Chicago's reformist and Progressive milieu in the decade before Europe's new war by the architect William E. Drummond. His theory and terminology were widely exhibited and published during the years 1913–22.
