A necessary part of this research was the investigation of the background in which these children had been reared. Whatever might be shown about their intelligence must be interpreted in relation to the home situation. Material about the family and home was found in the family histories sometimes submitted as part of the official procedure of entering a child in the institution. Such records contained a certain amount of factual data about the parents as well as descriptive accounts of an impressionistic nature. These records were in some cases very fragmentary, but there were enough facts available for the group to give a picture considered adequate for the purposes of the study.
