An Archival History of the Econometric Society

For those of you who have an interest in the history of Econometrics as a discipline - that's all of you, right (?) - there's a fascinating collection of material available at The Econometric Society: An Archival History.

As the name suggests, this repository relates to the Econometric Society and the journal Econometrica. It contains all sorts of fascinating facts, correspondence, and the like.
