Library of Congress Authority File


Document Type



This Synopsis is an attempt to summarize legally significant events relevant to the law of the seas on a continuing yearly basis. This initial effort encompasses significant state, national, and international events which occurred between July 1, 1969, and March 15, 1970, indexed chronologically within each topic heading. The selection of the included events is arbitrary, due to the incompleteness of available resource materials and the lack of any established indices of significance. Of the numerous resources utilized, primary reliance was placed on the New York Times, the United States Code Congressional and Administrative News and the West Publishing Company's National Reporter System advance sheets.
