Between 1897 and 1933 the presidents of the United States joined progressive reformers in redefining the concept of the United States as a “melting pot.” Their use of this metaphor to describe assimilation never meant that immigrants had to completely abandon their ethnic cultures. The presidents’ speeches, letters, and administrative records reveal consistent support for the “melting pot” model as an alternative to nativist racism.
