Abstract:
This working paper contains four parts. Each is a history of homelessness in a particular city from around 1960 to around 1991. The four cities are Newark, New York, Chicago, and Toronto. The goal of the paper is to describe what happened and when it happened, without any attempt at explaining why. That will come later. Description has to precede explanation.
