In a significant sense it was Charles Kindleberger’s suggestion that I commission a paper for the Journal of Economic Literature on the card catalogue organizational system developed at the Institut für Weltwirtschaft Library in Kiel, FRG, which was the beginning of this Conference. I failed to find anyone willing to undertake the assignment but in the process I did visit Kiel twice. My reaction to the spectacular card catalogue was described in a brief Editor’s Note in the Journal of Economic Literature.1
