This chapter examines Bowman's role in dealing with the refugees of the Second World War, especially the Nazi genocide. Bowman's work on the pioneer fringe and his pursuit of a “science of settlement” led him to help formulate U.S. refugee policy. It observes that Bowman's government work after the Second World War started with the question of refugee resettlement. It takes a look at the two projects that served as the entrée to this work. The first was a privately funded project, while the second, the “M Project”, was composed of a long-term examination of refugee resettlement possibilities.

Keywords:   refugees, Nazi genocide, science of settlement, refugee policy, refugee resettlement, M Project
