To the Memory of 

Editor, 1908-1949 


This volume, a classified list of books and articles on United States 
history published during 1948, continues a series of volumes of which 
the latest, for 1939 and 1940, was issued in 1949. No volumes have been 
prepared for the years 1941-47. 

The first volume of this series, listing publications of 1902, was 
issued in 1904, and the second, for publications of 1903, in 1905. The 
years 1904 and 1905 were not covered. Writings published during the 
3^ears 1906-40 were listed in 33 volumes edited by Grace Gardner Griffin. 
Miss Griffin retired from the editorship in 1949 after 41 years of service. 
Her achievement in American historical bibliography has never been 

The present volume and a volume for 1949 were prepared by the 
Library of Congress between July 6, 1949, and April 2, 1951, with funds 
provided by the American Historical Association. The work was done 
under the general supervision of vSolon J. Buck as occupant of the Chair 
of American History. 

On December 12, 1951, the National Historical Publications Com- 
mission, at the request of the Executive Secretary of the American 
Historical Association, assumed responsibility for preparing the Writings 
and seeing the volumes through the press. It is understood that the 
Writings will continue to be printed as parts of the annual reports of the 
Association. The Commission's only responsibility for the volume for 1948 
has been to complete the reading of proofs. The volume for 1949 is in 
press, and work on the volume for 1950 is nearing completion. No pro- 
vision has yet been made for preparing the volumes for 1941-47. 

The main differences between this volume and its predecessors are 
the following: (1) Only titles pertaining to the history of the United 
States are included. (2) Reviews are not cited. (3) Duplicate citation 
of titles, and cross references within the text, are discontinued; each title 
is cited only once. (4) Biographical titles, and titles designated as 
"sources and documents," are not separated from other titles. (5) Titles 
are arranged, as far as possible, by regions, and topical classification is 
confined to titles that pertain to the United States in general. (6) Titles 
pertaining to relations of the United States with foreign powers, and to 
activities of American citizens, agencies, and organizations abroad, are 
grouped in a separate; section. (7) Titles are cited clu'onologically accord- 
ing to beginning date of subject matter, not alphabetically by author or by 
first word of title. (8) Illustrations, such as maps and portraits, are cited 
for articles as well as for titles published separately. (9) Footnotes or 


notes at ends of chapters or volumes, citing sources of information or of 
quotations, with page references, are designated by the word "notes." 

(10) The index is expanded for the accommodation of readers who wish 
to pursue single topics through all regions and periods, and whose 
needs in this respect are not met by the present scheme of arrangement. 

(11) The format and typography of the volume are revised for greater 

This volume is designed to include every book and article, however 
brief, that has any considerable value for study and research in the history 
of the United States from prehistoric times to the end of 1945. Works 
mainly descriptive of present conditions, and those dealing mainly with 
current affairs, are cited when they present historical information that 
seems difficult to obtain from other sources or that may be useful as a 
clue to such sources. A few publications of which the texts may have 
little value for historical purposes have been listed because they contain 
illustrations of historical value. 

All publications cited in this volume have been examined by the 
editor. An attempt has been made to cite in the volume for 1949 the 
relevant publications issued during 1948 that were not seen while the 
volume for 1948 was in course of preparation.
