Public Statements of the Chair of the Board of Governors

These statements include speeches and congressional testimony given by various chairmen (now chair) of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. Most were issued as press releases by the Board of Governors. Some on-the-record interviews with news reporters are also included. However, responses to questions when providing testimony at congressional hearings are not included in these documents, as they were not prepared statements; the responses are included in the published hearings issued by Congress. These files do not include every on-the-record interview with reporters. Interviews were not consistently released as press releases by the Public Affairs office of the Board of Governors.

Prior to the enactment of the Banking Act of 1935, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System was known as the Federal Reserve Board and the chairman and vice chairman were known as governor and vice governor. A complete list of members 1914-present is available at http://www.federalreserve.gov/aboutthefed/bios/board/boardmembership.htm.
