It would be hard to overemphasize the importance of the
Dictionary as a reference book for school libraries and for
teachers and writers of American history. Every high school

The Association has just received a copy of the Guide to the
Material in the National Archives (Washington: United States
Government Printing Office, 1940; pp. xviii, 305; paper, 40
cents, cloth, 70 cents). Dr. R. D. W. Connor, Archivist of the
National Archives, wrote the foreword to the Guide. To attempt
to catalogue from the table of contents would require consid-
erable space. The important thing to know is that this guide is
available to libraries and scholars and that it can be had at
the very low cost indicated above. In order, the Guide gives an
insight into what is on file on the Senate, on each of the
ten administrative departments, on thirty-seven independent
agencies of the Federal Government, on the federal district
courts for the District of Columbia and for the eastern district
of North Carolina, and on gift motion pictures and sound re-
cordings. The appendix of sixteen pages lists other records
received by December 31, 1939. Two pamphlets accompanied
the Guide, namely, one reporting on accessions during the first
quarter of 1940, and the other doing the same for the second
quarter. This Guide will be a tremendously useful tool in the
hands of laymen, librarians, and social scientists.
