dc.description.abstract As a gerontology minor and a resident of Muncie, Indiana, I was curious about local attidues toward growing older and the aged. The Muncie community has been surveyed many times (this is apparently one of the side effects of being a college community), notably by the Lynd investigators in the 1920's and 1930's in which Muncie was renamed "Middletown" (1, 2), and the currently in progress "Middletown III" project. To my knowledge, there have been no recent surveys of Muncie specifically dealing with aging. This study is intended to be a small beam of light scanning the sea of ignorance in this area.
