The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency Calls for Papers
Commemorating 150 Years of the National Banking System

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency today announced a call
for proposals for papers on the history of the OCC, the national
banking system, bank and thrift regulation and supervision, and
related topics. The OCC and the national banking system were created
by the National Currency Act of 1863.

An interdisciplinary panel of OCC experts will evaluate proposals for
originality and relevance to the history of the OCC, the national
banking system, bank and thrift regulation and supervision, and
related topics. At the end of the anniversary year, papers will be
compiled and published as a book. Authors may also be invited to
deliver oral presentations of their papers to local OCC audiences at
events during the anniversary year.

Authors should hold an advanced degree in one or more of the following
fields: history, economics, political science, public policy, or law.
Proposals must be accompanied by a curriculum vita as well as a
detailed summary of the topic, stating a thesis and examples of the
sources to be used.

The deadline for proposals is May 11, 2012. The OCC will notify
authors of its decision by June 30, 2012. Completed papers will be
due by May 30, 2013.
