I 15. PUBLIC DOCUMENTS DIVISION-Continued
whom the same * * * have been distributed and delivered, and to report the same to Congress at the
1st session of each Congress." Under this act at least one itemized register was printed and is found in
the annual report of the Interior Department for 1859, but with this exception and with the exception of
a few scattering comments on the distribution of public documents in the annual reports of the Secretary'
of Interior, between 1859 and 1878 no registers similar to that of 1859 appear to have been printed, in spite
of sec. 3 of the act of Fe. 5, 1859, and sec. 445 of Revised statutes. No reports appear to have been printed
other than the reports as listed below.
The egislative, executive, and judicial appropriation act, 1869, approved Mar. 3, 1869, directed that "the
Secretary of Interior shall appoint a superintendent of public documents." The office of superintendent
of documents of Interior Department was abolished by the printing aw of Jan. 12, 1895, which provided
for the appointment of the superintendent of documents under the Government Printing Office. Since
thelaw of Jan. 12, 1895, became operative, the Interior Department distributed only its own documents
and the former title of superintendent of documents was changed to clerk in charge of documents, whose
office was finally abolished July 1, 1907, by action of the Secretary of Interior.
See, for Acts and resolutions governing printing and distribution of public documents, page 35 of Report
regarding publication and distribution of public documents, by J. G. Ames, A. R. Spofford, and Spencer
F. Baird, 1882 (I15.2:D65 ).]
