1917-19, Mass. Constitutional Convention Debates
Debates in the Massachusetts Constitutional Convention, 1917-1918: Vol. 1-4, Boston, Wright & Potter Printing Co., State Printers, 1918-20, all
published. (Massachusetts is the only one of the original thirteen states to be governed by its original constitution, the one of 1780. However, the
constitution was considerably liberalized by the adoption of amendments in 1820 that abolished all property qualifications for voting, provided for the
incorporation of cities, and removed religious tests for officeholders. Finally, the original document was extensively amended by this constitutional
convention of 1917-1918. This journal of the debates of the latter differs from the normal pattern for this type of literature in that it is organized by
topics, with extraneous procedural material being edited out: V.1 covers Constitutional Chapters 1-XV, and its Table of Contents is at p. v; V.2
covers Initiative and Referendum, and its T.C is on pp. v-ix; V.3 covers chapters XVII-LXI, and its T.C. is on p. iii-iv; while V.4 covers the
rearrangement of the constitution and miscellaneous matters, and its T.C. is on pp. iii-iv. A general index for all four volumes appears in V.4 at pp. 439-555.)
