 This publication is a mimeograph copy of the original reports compiled by the Dept. of Ag Economics at Cornell University.  This comes from a  volume of County data kindly given me by Jack Eaton.  It is titled on the spine New York County Census Data, Vol. 1, Albany thru Nassau, A.E. 589 thru A.E. 615, 1879-1945, and on the Madison County page as Census Data - 1875 to 1945, Shows Some Changes in Madison County Agriculture and Land Use; prepared by M.C. Bond; Statistical Work by Kay Towner, Faith Snyder; Department of Agricultural Economics, New York State College of Agriculture, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York; A.E. 612; September 1947.

Other counties (Albany through Nassau) are available, but the paper and binding are very very fragile.  If you are a student or researcher and would like copies of data from other counites or the State Statistics for 1945 in the front of the volume, please feel free to contact me and I will help if I can.  I only have Volume I which has the counties from Albany to Nassau.  If anyone knows where I can obtain a copy of Volume II I would like to know more about that possibility.

I have not transcribed these pages and present only the images of each page.  I show only the parts of each page with contain any information or format.

The images are not reduced or enlarged and should be suitable for printing withouth difficulty.
