SEC Historical: Virtual Museum and Archive

SEC Historical: The Virtual Museum and Archive of the History of Financial Regulation is maintained by the SEC Historical Society, an independent nonprofit organization. This is a goldmine of documents and media related to the history of financial regulation in the United States. An ever-growing virtual repository, it provides access to original materials not available elsewhere online, including hard-to-find papers and speeches, oral histories, famous case and legislative history documents, and radio and TV interviews. The "galleries," topical collections of documents drawn from the entire museum, focus on subjects such as insider trading and the SEC and the courts.  A financial regulation timeline highlights significant developments in financial regulation from the 1930s through 2013.

SEC Historical is a great resource for background and primary source material for legal research papers. It's also just fun to search and explore.
