ARCHITECTUAL PRESERVATION IN THE UNITED STATES, 1965-1974: A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT PUBLICATIONS

This bibliography lists federal, state, and local government publications relating to architectural preservation in the United States, including Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, which appeared between 1965 and 1974. For purposes of this bibliography "architecture" has been defined in its broadest sense and materials listed cover various man-made structures ranging from prehistoric Indian ruins, to restored Colonial villages, to now-defunct lighthouses, to late nineteenth century mansions. The concept "preservation", on the other hand, has been narrowly defined so as to exclude the large amount of material which more properly falls under the rubric of architectural history. Specifically, sites and structures have been included only if they or their ruins are still standing or have been reconstructed. The publications themselves range from substantial scholarly studies to tourist brochures and other ephemera. Citations have been grouped into four main sections. Section I, Architectural Preservation, includes general material on the topic, along with governmental agency annual reports, administrative policies, programs, official site inventory forms, and other items not clearly falling into one of the other three sections. Section II, Historic Sites Registors, lists registers, inventories, surveys, maps, and guides which compile brief information on numerous sites. Section III, Historic Structures, includes publications on specific structures or complexes of structures. Section IV, Preservation Legislation, covers legislative public laws, state laws and statutes, and local ordinances.
