Archival and Infrastructure Projects

 

Databases (completed)

 

(1)   “Database of British Borough Charters.” This database contains every British borough charter coded as a vector of characteristics suitable for statistical analysis. An accompanying article and codebook translate the terminology used in the original manuscripts into the lexicon of modern legal scholars and social scientists. I have made this database available to the public.

 

(2)   “Villages and Cooperatives in Late-Medieval England.” This database contains information about every village and guild in two English counties, Cambridgeshire and Yorkshire, from 1300 to 1550. The information is coded as a vector of characteristics suitable for statistical analysis. I have made this database available to the public, although I have not yet had the time to create a user friendly codebook.

 

(3)   “Census of Guilds and Corporations, England, 1388.” This database contains translations of more than 500 returns to the corporate census of 1388. A series of spreadsheets convert the returns into a vector of characteristics suitable for statistical analysis. Since I continue to conduct research with this material, the database remains proprietary.

 

(4)   Linguistic Evidence of Technological Change in Medieval Europe, The Oxford English Dictionary Project.” This database contains every word in the OED which originated as the name of a product or production technique between 1200 and 1800. Since I continue to conduct research with this material, the database remains proprietary.

 

(5)   “Bank Changes During the Great Depression: 1929 to 1939.” This database contains an observation for every change in status for every bank in the United States, both members of the Federal Reserve system and nonmembers, national and state, incorporated and private. These events included the major, such as openings, closings, reopenings, receiverships, and consolidations, and the minor, such as changes in Federal Reserve membership, capital stock, charter type, and even street address. The forms also included financial information for each bank on the date of each transaction. The data is drawn from the Federal Reserve Board of Governors’ cause of suspension forms, which I discovered in the National Archives of the United States. Since I continue to conduct research with this material, the database remains proprietary.

 

(6)   “Causes of Bank Suspensions During the Great Depression: 1929 to 1939.” This database contains an analysis of the cause of every bank suspension during the Great Depression. It is drawn from the Federal Reserve Board of Governors’ cause of suspension forms, which I discovered in the National Archives of the United States. Since I continue to conduct research with this material, the database remains proprietary.

 

Databases (in progress)

 

(7)   Acts of Parliaments and Statutes of the Realm.” With a research initiative grant from the University of California, Professor Dan Bogart and I are computerizing and cataloguing the statutory basis of the English legal system. We have completed coding of the period 1660 to 1800. We have received two UC system grants to fund the initial stages of this project. Now, we are applying for an NSF Law and Social Science program grant to complete the project. Papers with initial results should be completed by the fall quarter of 2005.

 

(8)   “Chinese Passenger Manifests, 1882 to 1942, The Asian Immigration Research Project.” Joint with Ken Chew and John Liu. This long term project is encoding the lists of Chinese passengers that reached the United States during the era of Chinese exclusion. When completed, it should become one of the most significant primary sources for the study of Chinese-American history. We have received 3 UC system grants to fund this project.

 

(9)   “Transmission Channels of Monetary Policy During the Great Depression: Bank, Firms, and Financial Markets.”  This data project builds on databases (5) and (6) above to which it adds information on firms, farms, and the financial links between these institutions. The goal is to create a data set detailed enough to answer the most important macroeconomic questions concerning the Great Depression. How did monetary policy influence the economy? Could Federal Reserve intervention have alleviated the downturn? What were the channels that transmitted monetary policy to the real economy? I am structuring the dataset so that I can conduct border discontinuity analysis, comparing outcomes between Federal Reserve Districts which pursued different monetary policies. This method of analysis allows me to estimate the relationship between monetary actions and economic activity free from the problems of inference that plague traditional analysis. It is the subject of my NSF Career proposal submitted July 2005.
