Federal Bank of St. Louis posts digitized archival records from Federal Reserve’s records held at National Archives

Via Katrina Stierholz, Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis: “…we have digitized archival records from the Federal Reserve’s records held at the National Archives.  The Federal Reserve’s records are known as Record Group 82, and we have digitized and posted materials from the Reserve Bank Organization Committee ( ), which selected the Reserve Bank cities in 1914; materials from Fed’s work during the Banking Holiday of 1933 ( ), which closed all banks across the country for six days; and materials from the Open Market Investment Committee and Open Market Policy Conference ( ), the predecessors to the Federal Open Market Committee. In addition to the materials from the National Archives, we have also posted materials from the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum regarding the Treasury – Federal Reserve Accord of 1951 ( The Fed’s centennial begins on December 23, 2013, and these collections help us highlight the history of the Federal Reserve System, and provide wide access to archival documents that illustrate the founding and early years of the Federal Reserve.”
