75 Years of American Finance: A Graphic Presentation 1861-1935

The work was created by L. Merle Hostetler in 1936, while he was at Cleveland College of Western Reserve University (now known as Case Western Reserve University). At some point after it was printed, he added the years 1936-1938. Mr. Hostetler became a Financial Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland in 1943. In 1953 he was made Director of Research. He resigned from the Bank in 1962 to work for Union Commerce Bank in Cleveland. He died in 1990. The volume appears to be self published and consists of a chart, approximately 85' long, fanfolded into 40 pages with additional years attached to the last page. It also includes a "topical index" to the chart and some questions of technical interest which can be answered by the chart.
