History Associates Details Investment Company Regulation History in New Online Exhibit

The Securities and Exchange Commission Historical Society recently launched a new online gallery on the history of investment company regulation. Investment Company Regulation: The Intricacies of an “Enlightened Partnership” is the 16th permanent gallery on the Virtual Museum and Archive, hosted on www.sechistorical.org. The new gallery, extensively researched and curated by Dr. Kenneth Durr of History Associates, launched in December, 2017.

Panel at SEC Historical Society’s 18th Annual Meeting on June 1, 2017

Three former Directors of the SEC Division of Investment Management came together at the SEC Historical Society’s 18th Annual Meeting on June 1, 2017 for a panel discussion entitled “Rulemaking Under the ’40 Act,” Moderated by Dr. Kenneth Durr, VP of History Associates. Panelists include (from left) Norm Champ; Andrew “Buddy” Donohue; and Paul Roye (click to view webcast).

“Most Americans take investment companies for granted,” noted Dr. Durr. “However the mutual funds so many of us depend on for retirement might not exist today — were it not for regulatory regime established to help investment companies recover from the excesses of the 1920s.”

The new online gallery spans the evolution of regulation from 1924 to modern-day and includes dozens of rare manuscripts, papers, letters, hearing transcripts, photos, oral histories, panel discussion webcasts, and other original source materials.

The Investment Company Gallery was made possible by the generous support of W. Hardy Callcott, Partner at Sidley Austin LLP in San Francisco.
