Business and Economic History On-Line

Welcome to Business and Economic History On-Line, a selection of papers presented at the Business History Conference's annual meeting. Authors from each annual meeting are encouraged to submit their papers for inclusion in BEH On-Line; please read the Submission Guidelines for more details about the process. We expect to have the papers for each meeting posted on-line before the end of the calendar year in which the meeting is held.

BEH On-Line was founded by William J. Hausman in 2003 on behalf of the Business History Conference as a continuation of the Business and Economic History print series; he was assisted by Deborah Green of the College of William & Mary. Edwin J. Perkins assumed the editorship with the 2010 issue and served through 2012. Pat Denault provided editorial assistance for volumes 1-9. Benjamin Schwantes of the German Historical Institute served as editor until 2019, with Will Hausman as assistant editor from 2014.

The entire run of the printed Business and Economic History, 1962-1999, is available as well. Citations in BEH On-Line papers to essays from these issues are linked to the full text in the archives.
