Atlas of Historical County Boundaries [ACB]

Compilation of the "Atlas of Historical County Boundaries," which will illustrate all changes in the boundaries, names, organization, and attachment of every United States county from 1619 to 2000.

This is a project to research and compile from primary sources all changes in the boundaries, names, organization, and attachment of every county in the United States from 1619 to 2000. This proposal covers Alaska, Arkansas, Hawaii, Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Nebraska. This will be the final stage in the compilation of all fifty states. The results will be disseminated in electronic form as viewable maps from the Web site of the Newberry and other agencies and as cartographic data files (in shapefile format) for use with geographic information systems.
