The Brookings Institution Survey on Refugee Settlement in the Dominican Republic was prepared with the aid of a $50,000 grant by the Falk Foundation of Pittsburgh and undertaken on the initiative of Falk, Leon Jr., President of DORSA in 1941 - 1942. The report maintained that the absorptive capacity of the Dominican Republic was restricted to some 3,000 - 5,000 agricultural settlers and an unspecified number of industrial settlers and must rest upon "existing conditions." The JDC labeled the report prejudiced since, among other considerations, it disregarded the recommendation of the Brookings own agricultural expert whose estimate of absorptive capacity was far higher. Opponents of DORSA often cited the report in support of their own position. The JDC files do not contain the full text of the report. Correspondence.
