Annual Report of the American Historical Association for the Year 1914. Vol. 1, pp. 504. Washington.

THIS ancient volume contains, besides the official proceedings of the society, fourteen historical papers. The last four deal with American history. Henry B. Learned has a fourteen-page article on Cabinet Meetings Under Polk; St. George L. Sioussat, a sixteen-page article on Tennessee and National Parties 1850, 1860; P. Orman Ray, a twenty-two-page article on the Genesis of the Kansas-Nebraska Act; and Robert G. Cleland, a ten-page article on Asiatic Trade and the American Occupation of the Pacific Coast. Of these the ones by Professor Sioussat and Dr. Ray have interest for Indiana readers. Under the head "proceedings of the Eleventh Annual Conference of Historical Societies" is a paper by Dr. James A. Wood-burn on Research in State History at State Universities. In this paper he discusses the field for such work, its value as material for seminary training in history and its general value to the State. The article was published in the March, 1915, number of this MAGAZINE.
