The Small City and Town was first published in 1930. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.

This volume presents papers originally presented to a 1929 conference on community relations held at the University of Minnesota. The conference was designed to assess the place of the small city and town in the modern economic organization. Topics of discussion are devoted to the economic relationships of the small town including: banking; merchandising and manufacturing; forestry; highways and transit; public media; school systems; and budgetary and accounting procedure. In total, the conference proceedings point toward the outline of a program for community engineering and administration.
