Ohio History Journal





The staff of Ohio History wishes to announce that, due to budget-

ary restrictions, this issue, Autumn 1981, is the journal's final

appearance as a quarterly publication. Henceforth, beginning in

October 1982, Ohio History will be an annual publication. We would

like to emphasize that only the frequency of publication will change;

the journal, while serving a broad spectrum of readers interested in

state and regional history, will continue to specialize in articles

written by professionally trained members of the academic com-

munity. As has been its policy since it was first published in 1887,

Ohio History will seek to offer its readership the very best in histor-

ical monographs and documents relating to the political, social, eco-

nomic, and cultural history of Ohio and the Middle West.
