Iowa Rural Government Since 1900.
Wessel, Robert I.
In order to provide better understanding of how changes in county and township government fit contemporary (1963) situations, this study reviews rural governments in Iowa since the beginning of the century. In the first part of the report, county and township governments are described as they existed in 1900. The second part examines changes which were made in the period from 1900 to 1930. Developments from 1930 to 1961 comprise the third section. Major topics include appointive and elective offices, boards and commissions, education, finance, highways, and welfare. Some of the major problem areas are presented, with suggested remedial action. Graphs, tables, and diagrams supplement the text.
