Nelson Wilmarth Aldrich (1841-1915) served as United States Senator from Rhode Island, 1881-1911. Following the Panic of 1907, with its accompanying rash of bank failures, he cosponsored the Aldrich-Vreeland Act of 1908, providing for the establishment of a National Monetary Commission to study banking and currency operations at home and abroad and to suggest changes in American practices. The National Monetary Commission materials in this collection document the Commission's activities and Aldrich's role as chairman.
