Some Recent Publications Relating to Norwegian-American History
Compiled by Jacob Hodnefield (Volume V: Page 122)

The editorial board has had under consideration for some time a plan to publish each year in STUDIES AND RECORDS a list of recent writings in the Norwegian-American historical field. The project as inaugurated in the present volume by Mr. Hodnefield of the James J. Hill Reference Library of St. Paul is tentative as regards both content and form; and suggestions of methods by which such an annual checklist can be made more useful will be welcomed. It would be especially helpful in forwarding this enterprise if copies of books, pamphlets, and articles in the field indicated were sent to the managing editor by authors and publishers.

In the main the publications listed herewith were issued in 1929 and 1930, but a few items from 1928 are included.
