The Sessional Papers of the British House of Commons. Until now, these Sessional Papers have been available at University of Illinois only in uncataloged print volumes and microforms. The House of Commons Parliamentary Papers Digital Collection comprises the Sessional Papers from 1715 to the present. The Sessional Papers were documents printed by order of the House, and include Bills (public and private), committee reports, reports of the ministries and non-Parliamentary government organizations, and any other document submitted by order of the House. The collection does not include the debates of the House ("Hansards") or the proceedings of the House (House of Commons Journal).
Over 60 newspapers that document a key moment in the history of American westward expansion: the forced allotment of Indian tribal lands in Indian Territory, the abolition of tribal governments, the opening of unreserved lands for American settlement, and the transition of Indian Territory to Oklahoma Territory and then statehood. Many of the collection's newspapers appear here in digitized form for the first time ever.
