Pierce, Preston E., Comp.
A compilation of resources is provided for those interested in examining action taken by the executive branch of the federal government to foster scientific and engineering excellence in the United States in the nineteenth century. The resources are intended for use by pre-college secondary science and social studies teachers. Each of the resources listed in the bibliography section of the document can be obtained from any typical college library and from most public libraries by making use of interlibrary loans. The resources are divided into seven groups: historical references, reference works, non-print resources, Historic American Engineering Record and Historic American Buildings Survey, patent research, organizations, and National Archives and Records Administration.
