NBER Working Paper No. 16355
---- Acknowledgements ----
I have benefited from the suggestions offered by participants at the Washington Area Economic History Seminar (March 2008), the NBER's "Development of the American Economy" Summer Institute (July 2008), the Conference on Historical Approaches to Economics at Stanford University (September 2008), and the Bay Area Colloquium on Population (March 2009). Todd Sorensen made helpful suggestions after a close reading of an early draft. Susan B. Carter has followed this project from its inception. Her advice and encouragement are especially appreciated.
