Description

Excerpt from Index of Economic Material in Documents of the States of the United States, Vol. 8: Kentucky, 1792-1904; Prepared for the Department of Economics and Sociology of the Carnegie Institution of Washington This index undertakes to deal only with the printed reports of administrative officers, legislative committees, and special commissions of the states and with gov ernors' messages for the period since 1792. It does not refer to constitutions, laws, legislative proceedings or court decisions, except in so far as they happen to be found in the class of documents above mentioned. It attempts, on the other hand, to furnish a list, as complete as possible, of all the documents and messages which fall within its scope, in whatever form they may have been published, whether separately, in collected documents, legislative journals or volumes of laws, and to indicate the volume in which they may be found. In general, unless otherwise shown, the material indexed is in the New York Public Library. In addition to furnishing a list of reports and messages, the index undertakes to supply a reference by volume and page to all material of economic importance which they contain, with the exception of that contained in the reports of bureaus of labor. The reason for this exception is that these reports have already been indexed by the late Carroll D. Wright, then United States Commissioner of Labor, ' in a volume published by his department in 1902. Although the index is confined to matter of economic bearing, the term economic has been given a broad interpretation. In view of this liberal interpretation it is believed that the index will constitute a useful addition to the resources of students of almost any aspect of American history.
