CIVIL SERVICE REFORM LEAGUE, an organization founded in 1881, for the purpose of investigating the efficiency of governmental civil service. It has performed effective work in this connection and largely through its influence many important civil service measures have been passed. During the World War its work was especially valuable in securing civil service efficiency as a factor in military success. After the signing of the armistice in November, 1918, the League effected an investigation into the sources of inefficiency in the civil service at Washington, and recommended the reorganization of the Civil Service Commission.
