United States. Census Office. Census of Agriculture 1860

Woodbridge, CT: Research Publications, 1986 
U.S. Decennial Census Publications

This collection of census material dates from 1790 (when the first decennial census of population was conducted) to 1970. It forms an inventory of the growth and development of the United States in all its measurable dimensions. Since 1790 the decennial census has been extended to produce statistical data in a variety of fields. Examples of areas covered in this collection are population, manufactures, agriculture, transportation, and housing. The census of manufactures was first taken in 1810 and provides detailed data on manufacturing activities for small geographic areas, individual industries, products shipped, and materials consumed. This census was taken decennially until 1940, after which the period varied. The first nationwide census of agriculture was taken in 1840 as part of the Sixth Decennial Census of Population. Since that time the census of agriculture has developed from a small part of the census of population to a separate large-scale census. The first census of agriculture was limited to such items as the production of principal crops, an inventory of the principle classes of domestic animals, the production of wool and the value of dairy and poultry products. Each succeeding census has been broadened to reflect the rapid change in farming practices brought about by the increased application of scientific findings and the growing mechanization in agriculture. Some information on transportation was compiled and published in connection with the decennial censuses of 1880 and 1890 though they were not regarded as censuses in their own right. Information on home ownership has been obtained in each decennial census since 1890 and there has been a separate large-scale decennial census of housing since 1940.

Woodbridge, CT: Research Publications, 1986 
U.S. Decennial Census Publications

This collection of census material dates from 1790 (when the first decennial census of population was conducted) to 1970. It forms an inventory of the growth and development of the United States in all its measurable dimensions. Since 1790 the decennial census has been extended to produce statistical data in a variety of fields. Examples of areas covered in this collection are population, manufactures, agriculture, transportation, and housing. The census of manufactures was first taken in 1810 and provides detailed data on manufacturing activities for small geographic areas, individual industries, products shipped, and materials consumed. This census was taken decennially until 1940, after which the period varied. The first nationwide census of agriculture was taken in 1840 as part of the Sixth Decennial Census of Population. Since that time the census of agriculture has developed from a small part of the census of population to a separate large-scale census. The first census of agriculture was limited to such items as the production of principal crops, an inventory of the principle classes of domestic animals, the production of wool and the value of dairy and poultry products. Each succeeding census has been broadened to reflect the rapid change in farming practices brought about by the increased application of scientific findings and the growing mechanization in agriculture. Some information on transportation was compiled and published in connection with the decennial censuses of 1880 and 1890 though they were not regarded as censuses in their own right. Information on home ownership has been obtained in each decennial census since 1890 and there has been a separate large-scale decennial census of housing since 1940.

U.S. Decennial Census Publications

This collection of census material dates from 1790 (when the first decennial census of population was conducted) to 1970. It forms an inventory of the growth and development of the United States in all its measurable dimensions. Since 1790 the decennial census has been extended to produce statistical data in a variety of fields. Examples of areas covered in this collection are population, manufactures, agriculture, transportation, and housing. The census of manufactures was first taken in 1810 and provides detailed data on manufacturing activities for small geographic areas, individual industries, products shipped, and materials consumed. This census was taken decennially until 1940, after which the period varied. The first nationwide census of agriculture was taken in 1840 as part of the Sixth Decennial Census of Population. Since that time the census of agriculture has developed from a small part of the census of population to a separate large-scale census. The first census of agriculture was limited to such items as the production of principal crops, an inventory of the principle classes of domestic animals, the production of wool and the value of dairy and poultry products. Each succeeding census has been broadened to reflect the rapid change in farming practices brought about by the increased application of scientific findings and the growing mechanization in agriculture. Some information on transportation was compiled and published in connection with the decennial censuses of 1880 and 1890 though they were not regarded as censuses in their own right. Information on home ownership has been obtained in each decennial census since 1890 and there has been a separate large-scale decennial census of housing since 1940.

United States. Census Office. Census of Population 1920

Woodbridge, CT: Research Publications, 1986 
U.S. Decennial Census Publications

This collection of census material dates from 1790 (when the first decennial census of population was conducted) to 1970. It forms an inventory of the growth and development of the United States in all its measurable dimensions. Since 1790 the decennial census has been extended to produce statistical data in a variety of fields. Examples of areas covered in this collection are population, manufactures, agriculture, transportation, and housing. The census of manufactures was first taken in 1810 and provides detailed data on manufacturing activities for small geographic areas, individual industries, products shipped, and materials consumed. This census was taken decennially until 1940, after which the period varied. The first nationwide census of agriculture was taken in 1840 as part of the Sixth Decennial Census of Population. Since that time the census of agriculture has developed from a small part of the census of population to a separate large-scale census. The first census of agriculture was limited to such items as the production of principal crops, an inventory of the principle classes of domestic animals, the production of wool and the value of dairy and poultry products. Each succeeding census has been broadened to reflect the rapid change in farming practices brought about by the increased application of scientific findings and the growing mechanization in agriculture. Some information on transportation was compiled and published in connection with the decennial censuses of 1880 and 1890 though they were not regarded as censuses in their own right. Information on home ownership has been obtained in each decennial census since 1890 and there has been a separate large-scale decennial census of housing since 1940.

Bills, as documents that detail proposals for new laws, reflect the national and regional concerns of a period in history. They consider questions of government policy and claims against the government. All bills proposed are reproduced in this collection regardless of the action taken on them. The text of the documents, the initial actions taken, and the amendments made are included. They are arranged by congressional session and house, and then in chronological order by bill number. The Congressional Record and earlier publications provide insight into the political events of the time, while providing some subject access to the bills that have been brought to the floor for discussion.

The collection spans the period 1801-1899. Ellis Library has bills and resolutions for the 7th through the 20th (1801/03 – 1827/29) and the 37th through the 55th Congresses (1861/63 – 1897/99). An uncataloged guide is located in the Special Collections office.

The returns for 1820 and 1830 provide similar information with the addition of the sex of free colored persons and slaves, the number of unnaturalized foreigners, and the number of persons engaged in agriculture, commerce or manufacture. The return for 1830 also provides the number of white persons, slaves, and colored persons who were deaf, mute or blind. These census records and other population censuses are available in the collection United States Decennial Census Publications, 1790-1970 described in this guide, (record 411).

This collection of census material dates from 1790 (when the first decennial census of population was conducted) to 1970. It forms an inventory of the growth and development of the United States in all its measurable dimensions. Since 1790 the decennial census has been extended to produce statistical data in a variety of fields. Examples of areas covered in this collection are population, manufactures, agriculture, transportation, and housing. The census of manufactures was first taken in 1810 and provides detailed data on manufacturing activities for small geographic areas, individual industries, products shipped, and materials consumed. This census was taken decennially until 1940, after which the period varied. The first nationwide census of agriculture was taken in 1840 as part of the Sixth Decennial Census of Population. Since that time the census of agriculture has developed from a small part of the census of population to a separate large-scale census. The first census of agriculture was limited to such items as the production of principal crops, an inventory of the principle classes of domestic animals, the production of wool and the value of dairy and poultry products. Each succeeding census has been broadened to reflect the rapid change in farming practices brought about by the increased application of scientific findings and the growing mechanization in agriculture. Some information on transportation was compiled and published in connection with the decennial censuses of 1880 and 1890 though they were not regarded as censuses in their own right. Information on home ownership has been obtained in each decennial census since 1890 and there has been a separate large-scale decennial census of housing since 1940.

The census reports in this collection have been separately entered in Ellis Library's online catalog, MERLIN.

Bethesda, Md.: Congressional Information Service, 1986

This collection includes hearings not published but preserved in the Senate committee files. When these materials were turned over to the National Archives, they became publicly available. CIS has collected and filmed these documents, which include closed session hearings of the Armed Services Committee and executive session meetings of all Senate committees. Since closed hearings cannot be made public for twenty years, CIS has excluded all post-1964 transcripts. Because preservation of hearing records prior to 1946 was scant, the bulk of the hearings date from 1946 to 1964.

204 reel(s)

From its first meeting in Philadelphia on September 5, 1774, to discuss common grievances against the British, the Continental Congress functioned as the first national government until the implementation of the Constitution in 1789. This collection includes material on foreign affairs, fiscal affairs, military and naval problems, and a postal system. The Congress struggled to fight the Revolution, solicit foreign assistance from European powers, and, after the Treaty of Paris in 1783, conduct domestic and foreign affairs under the Articles of Confederation. Finally, to overcome the weaknesses of the Articles government, a new constitution was ratified after a bitter battle between Federalists and anti-Federalists. This new instrument of government replaced the Continental Congress in 1789.

An uncataloged guide, Papers of the Continental Congress, 1774-1789, is available in the Special Collections Office. The guide contains background information on the collection, titles of related documents, an annotated table of reel contents, and an index to the entire collection.
