In making this study, the writer had three purposes in view: First, to find some of the possibilities of using Negro students' autobiographies in a scientific description of family relationships; second, to study the association between certain family relationships as described in these autobiographies and to find whether some were more closely associated than others; and third, on the basis of the associations, to formulate rules or tentative standards for a successful family.
The study included autobiographies from one hundred twelve Prairie View Students, the majority of which came from Rural and Urban families of Texas.
