Warren E. Weber Historical Data Archives

The Warren E. Weber Collection is moving!

The Digital Archives will be replaced in October 2018 with the Research Database. The Research Database is an institutional repository that contains the same content as the Digital Archives with a modern user interface, enhanced search and download functions, and increased sharing capabilities. It is available now in early release for testing and feedback purposes. This website is no longer being updated. New content is added only to the Research Database. The Digital Archives website will be unavailable after September 30, 2018. Please update your bookmarks now. For questions, email mpls.research.info.svcs@mpls.frb.org.

He also has been an adjunct economics professor at the University of Minnesota. Warren's M.S. and Ph.D. degrees are from Carnegie-Mellon University.
