History of this website
I created this site in 1998, shortly after I had begun a substantial research project on shareholder voting rights (still in progress!). Over time I expanded the site to become a portal for the history of capitalism as well as a gateway into my research on the history of corporations. Creation of the original site was made possible, in part, by funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, for which I remain deeply indebted. The current redesign dates from June 2013.
