Abstract:

This study investigated six hypotheses concerning the development of an ethnic community and intra-urban migration in Minneapolis from 1905 to 1945 1 Although a Polish ethnic core area could be identified, provincial clustering was not sharply defined within that group. 2 The port of entry function grew with the community and was not bound to the area of transient housing 3 The length of first generation move was more closely related to the expansion of Minneapolis and its economy than to the length of time since arrival 4 It cannot categorically be stated that second generation individuals are more mobile than first generation members. Important considerations are the definition of mobility used and the age structure of each generation and 5 More Polish moves were explained by within-group information flows than by Adams wedge-shaped mental map notion. Stability, not mobility, was the keynote of Polish residential choice.
