STATISTICAL SUMMARY OF THE C.R.B.'S FIVE YEARS
To quiet forever any possible criticism of the operations of the C.R.B., we published several large volumes from the documents in the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution, and Peace.
One volume of 440 pages prepared by George I. Gay, one of our old hands, gives the content and the cost of every cargo and the record of its distribution to each commune in Belgium and Northern France. This volume contained every detail of our accounts and our final balance sheets. Another volume, compiled by Frank Surface, statistically covered all Relief operations in Europe during the First World War. Two other volumes, published by the C.R.B. and compiled by H. H. Fisher and G. I. Gay, reproduced a part of the documentation of the C.R.B.
Our yearly deliveries of imported supplies over the years from November 1 to November 1 were (in tons):
|Third year (the submarine war)||724,175|
|Fifth year (10 months)||1,074,948|
