Tobacco Industry: Sources of Historical Research

Search the Library's Catalog

There are many subject headings that can be helpful for researching the tobacco industry, and below are just a few. We have also not included subject headings for individual counties within states where discussions about the industry can also be found. Also, there is no subject heading for the Master Settlement Agreement, so you will need to do a keyword search on master settlement agreement or tobacco settlement. Additional works in the Library of Congress may be identified by searching the Online Catalog under appropriate subject headings. Choose the topic you wish to search from the following list of Library of Congress subject headings, which link directly to the Online Catalog and automatically execute a search that will allow you to browse related subject headings.

General History

The history of tobacco in individual states may be found in material that looks at the history of a place. We have not included subject headings for all of the individual companies, though books on those companies and material published by them can be a useful source of information.
