Excerpt from International University Lectures, Delivered by the Most Distinguished Representatives of the Greatest Universities of the World, at the Congress of Arts and Science, Universal Exposition, St. Louis, Vol. 10

The century whose progress this Exposition celebrates has been for nothing else more remarkable than for its creation, not merely in this new world, but also in the old world, of the modern urban community. Speaking broadly, the cities of Great Britain and Germany in their present characteristics are as recent phenomena as the cities of this Louisiana Purchase region itself. Where five million people live under urban conditions as a part of a great community adjacent to New York Harbor, there were not one hundred thousand people when the Louisiana Purchase was consummated. London and Paris were ancient cities, with their splendors of old architecture and their pride of municipal and local tradition. But all that vast and complex development of the metropolis that London and Paris, Berlin and Vienna, have to deal with to-day, is of as late emergence as Buenos Ayres or Chicago. The modern city, whether of cosmopolitan character or merely commercial and industrial, is in all its larger aspects, for political and social purposes, the outgrowth of new conditions which began to make themselves powerfully effective only in the nineteenth century.
