xii INTRODUCTION 1907 it contained 1,222 pages. In 1911 the legislature estab- lished a maximum length of 800 pages. Approximately 45,000 copies are distributed by the Bureau of Purchases in accordance with the statutes. The bulk of these copies go to legislators. Each assemblyman gets 200 copies and each senator gets 300 copies. Copies go to all Wisconsin public libraries and to all schools. The distribution to schools is based on enrollment. Copies are also distributed to officials designated in the statutes. The book may also be purchased from the Bureau of Purchases. The statutes provide a guide to the content of the volume. It must contain lists of legislators, statistics and other information of the same general character as that previously included. It must also contain material useful in the civics classes in schools. In 1933 the cost of printing and distributing the Blue Book was a little more than $17,000. Since then the costs have risen sub- stantially. The 1956 edition cost $66,798 for 45,500 copies, but this did not include distribution or editing costs. Without the wholehearted cooperation of the various state agencies, the publication of this volume would not be possible. Special recognition is given to Gerald L. Matthews for the il- lustrations on the title pages, to John D. Meredith for the illus- trations in the feature article, and to the E. F. Schmidt Co., Milwaukee, for the frontispiece; and to the staffs of the Printing Division of the Bureau of Purchases and the Legislative Refer- ence Library for their work in preparing the copy for this edi- tion.
