Pres. Theodore Roosevelt's Oath of Office at Buffalo, NY. (1901)
These home-made files and indexes were labors of love (emphasis on the word labor), but with the emergence of computers and databases that can perform complex searches and organization for us, as well as companies that compile annotations and citations for us, they are not as commonly found today. However, that isn't to say that they aren't tremendously useful.
