Editor's Introduction

OHIO has been strangely backward in the preservation of her historical materials and in the writing of her history. Most volumes hitherto published and dealing with the history of the State either suffer from the limitations imposed by the necessity of compressing the narrative within the limits of a one-volume textbook treatment, or they deal with only part of the period, fail to meet the standards of modern scientific historical scholarship or to set the history of Ohio in its proper perspective, or exalt local pride at the sacrifice of impartial, scholarly judgment and method.

For many years the responsible officers of the Ohio State Archaeological and Historical Society, the historical guild in Ohio's colleges and universities, and various other groups interested in the cultivation and study of State history have been aware of the need for a new multiple-volume definitive History of the State of Ohio.

The Ohio project, long discussed, at last came to fruition when a proposal was submitted by the Board of Trustees of the Ohio State Archaeological and Historical Society and its Committee on Publications to the legislature of Ohio for the preparation and publication of a six-volume history of the State in connection with Ohio's observance of the 150th anniversary of the organization of the Northwest Territory and the establishment of civil government within its limits under the Ordinance of 1787. A bill, embodying the Society's suggestions, was passed by the legislature and received the approval of the governor on May 11, 1937. Work in selecting the authors of the respective volumes began at once. After more than three years of preparation, the first volume appeared in 1940.

The present enterprise has as its major objective the production
