The paper is a historical summary of American contributions to hydraulic measurement of streamflow for the period 1776-1976. The development and interrelation of conduit flow measuring devices together with open channel measuring devices is included in this update of previous historical summaries. The narrative style and historical sequencing is a useful complement to the more specific Bibliography on Discharge Measurement Techniques.
