[ocr errors][merged small]

For seven years, from the birth of the Mississippi Walley Historical Association until the present time, Prof. Benjamin F. Shambaugh, superintendent of the State Historical Society of Iowa, has edited the Proceedings of the Association. Having at length resigned from the editorship, in response to the pressure of more urgent duties, the present editor has consented for a year to assume the burden laid down by Professor Shambaugh. Only those engaged in like work will realize how greatly the Mississippi Valley Historical Association in particular, and the world of historical scholarship in general, are indebted to Professor Shambaugh for his efficient and generous editorial service. The present volume covers the transactions of the Association from the close of the sixth annual meeting in 1914 to the close of the seventh annual meeting in 1915. Two meetings of the Association were held during this period, a mid-year meeting at Chicago at the time of the session of the American Historical Association, and the seventh annual meeting of the Association at New Orleans, April 22-24, 1915. Several of the papers and addresses delivered at these meetings have been published elsewhere, or, for various reasons, have not been furnished the editor. Except for these the present volume includes all of the papers, addresses before, and reports to, the Association during the year it covers. The work of preparing the copy for the printer and of seeing it through the press has been shared by Lydia M. Brauer, of the editorial staff of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin. The index has been compiled by Louise Phelps Kellogg, also of the Society’s staff. M. M. QUAIFE
