A. AGRICULTURE DEPARTMENT
[By an appropriation for the collection of agricultural statistics, Mar. 3, 1839, an
agricultural section was established in the Patent Office. The section continued
until May 15, 1862, when it was made a separate Department, though it was not
until Feb. 9, 1889, that it was raised to the dignity of a Cabinet office.

Al1.: Annual reports
(date) [The annual report on agriculture began in 1837 with a two-page statement in the report
of Henry L. Ellsworth, commissioner of patents. From that date to 1861 it formed a
part of the report of the commissioner of patents, making a separate volume after 1849.
In 1862 the Department of Agriculture was established, and its annual report was uniformly
issued up to 1893. Beginning with the report for 1894, in accordance with
paragraph 2, sec. 73, of the printing act of Jan. 12, 1895, two separate publications have
been issued, one, the report proper (Al.1:), containing the Secretary's report and
the purely executive reports of the several chiefs of bureaus, divisions, and offices;
the other, known as the Yearbook (A1.10:), embracing the Secretary's report and a
collection of special articles on agricultural science.
The title of the head of the Department was commissioner of agriculture until 1889, when
he became Secretary of Agriculture and a member of the Cabinet.
