Maps @ CU

City wards were no used as the geographic base for the 1900 census in Manhattan.  To identify Enumeration District (ED) numbers in Manhattan for the 1900, 1920, 1930 or 1940 census, consult Olin Maps G3804.N4:2M3 E25 [year] (e.g. G3804.N4:2M3E25 1900 U5).  These maps are photocopies of originals held in the Cartographic and Architectural Branch, National Archives and Records Administration.
