Excerpt from The Gang of Six: A Story of the Boy Life of to-Day

The "Gang of Six" is a story founded in experience. It is a composite narrative of actual demonstrations in social pedagogy and the work of reforming boy life. The motif of the writing is to present in available illustrations the most thoroughly attested conclusions and discoveries of specialists and teachers. It is hoped that the story may become an inspiration to many to take up the study of this problem; that it may even lead many to dedicate themselves to some of the lines of simple and unselfish effort suggested in it.

The philosophical conclusion, honored by universal acquiescence, that "the proper study of mankind is man," needs such an extension of its final term as will lay the stress of study upon the beginning stages of man's life. The proper study of statesman, teacher, divine, and economist is the boy. The literature on this subject is meager, for the reason that the inquiry has but fairly begun. Certain well-ascertained facts have, however, been set in order, and the science of social pedagogy may be said to be fairly established on its foundations. The main points in paidology, or this special branch of social reformation, may profitably be recounted here as an introduction to the story developed under the title above announced.

There are three periods in the life of "man in the making" - that is, the life of man that comes before majority. The first period is infancy. Many efforts have been made to fix the limits of this period in years.
