ABSTRACT
Despite the pessimistic assessment of Thomas and Znaniecki, Polish immigrants to the United States built a stable and cohesive social and institutional community in the interwar years. The complex network of self organization and a high rate of naturalization as U.S. citizens reflected the strongmotivation and ability of Polish Americans to fit into working class America during the 1920s and 30s
