It is my purpose in this paper to present a brief review of the stucco tests undertaken some years ago by the Bureau of Standards and continued as a cooperative investigation on a larger scale during the last three years. So far as I am concerned personally, the investigation is a most interesing one, not only because in some respects it is a baffling problem, or a series of such problems, but also because it concerns many people in many walks of life. The improvement of stucco is therefore a worthy object, and it is our purpose to provide the architect with a material freed, if possible, from certain objectionable qualities which are now inherent only in our lack of knowledge of the material and the methods of its application.
