COMING OF AGE IN THE OTHER AMERICA COMING OF AGE IN THE OTHER AMERICA Stefanie DeLuca, Susan Clampet-Lundquist, and Kathryn Edin Russell Sage Foundation New York The Russell Sage Foundation The Russell Sage Foundation, one of the oldest of America’s general purpose foundations, was established in 1907 by Mrs. Margaret Olivia Sage for “the improvement of social and living conditions in the United States.” The foundation seeks to fulfill this mandate by fostering the development and dissemination of knowledge about the country’s political, social , and economic problems. While the foundation endeavors to assure the accuracy and objectivity of each book it publishes, the conclusions and interpretations in Russell Sage Foundation publications are those of the authors and not of the foundation, its trustees, or its staff. Publication by Russell Sage, therefore, does not imply foundation endorsement. BOARD OF TRUSTEES Sara S. McLanahan, Chair Larry M. Bartels Karen S. Cook W.
