Abstract:

From 1955 to 1982, the Department of Defense DOD published the Map Book of Major Military Installations. This book gave DoD managers a convenient reference to locate major military installations in the United States. In the late 1970s, officials in the 0ffice of the Secretary of Defense suggested that the geography information in the Map Book be combined with the financial and personnel data so that a wide range of information about DoD would be available in a single publication. A prototype of this new book, in 1981, resulted in the first AtlasState Data Abstract, in 1982, and included geographic, financial, and personnel information for the fifty states. The 1984 edition was expanded to include selected U.S. Territories and Possessions, and the 1986 edition added selected foreign countries.
