Fair housing laws, despite the furor that attended their passage, have done little to change patterns of housing segregation, Professor Robert J. Harris told a faculty audience at dinner in the Lawyers Club, late last month. Together with Professor Eugene N. Feingold of the University of Michigan Political Science Department, Professor Harris has been engaged in a two-year study of five selected fair housing commissions, including the biggest (New York State), the most aggressive (New York City), and the most unlucky (California).
