Abstract

In 1930, a time when human geography was not considered to be among the emerging analytic social sciences and when urban geography barely existed as an identifiable subfield, C.W. Thornthwaite was awarded a doctorate under C.O. Sauer at the University of California, Berkeley. In his dissertation, Louisville, Kentucky : a study in urban geography, Thornthwaite analysed land-use zonation, commercial trip development, community formation, spatial competition and residential distribution. His innovative research traeted concepts that were to become central to urban geography as it developed in the late 1950s and the 1960s
