The Bureau of Labor was originally established in 1885 as an agency under the Department of the Interior, but in 1888 it became an independent bureau called the Department of Labor. By an act of 1903, this department was transferred to the Commerce and Labor Department, where it once again became known as the Bureau of Labor. In 1913, an independent Department of Labor was reestablished, and the Bureau of Labor became the Bureau of Labor Statistics, but the Commissioner's annual report gave way to the Secretary of Labor's annual report in the Serial Set. The annual report series from this office began in 1885 as part of the Annual Reports, Secretary of the Interior (I 1.1:), and continued to be published through the various changes of department.
