The following pages are divided into three parts.
The first part is a survey of research studies which have been done concerning the effects of hospitalization upon the child. These studies are arranged in order of publication--from the first study published in 1945 to the last one, which was published in 1968. A conclusion follows the individual reports of these studies.

The second part or the paper consists of a small-scale study whlch I conducted myself. It was done for personal interest and does not strictly follow research techniques. See Appendix I for the procedure used. Analyses by Dr. Pape and Dr . 8edarat (both I. W. U. professors) are included. My own table of observations is also included. I did not attempt to evaluate these groupings I found because
I think most of them are self-explanatory and I have had no background in such analyzing.

The last part consists of recommendations which I feel are based on the facts learned from the research I did for this project.
