Scope and Content Note

These theses were probably done in the Department of Economics honors course, which was begun in the 1916/1917 academic year. The majority of these theses were done between 1916 and 1918, although there are a few later years represented. These items were for the most part a gift of their authors; it is not clear, however, under what arrangement they came to University Archives or why they stopped.
The theses cover a wide variety of topics; in addition to pure economics and business practices, some cover social issues such as the juvenile court, vagrancy, laborers, and housing.
