In the midst of some ongoing research on mandatory securities law disclosures, I’ve come across the interesting fact that the first form for general disclosures was not the S-1 so familiar with contemporary securities lawyers, but instead Form A-1.  Moreover, it predated the 34 Act–meaning its administration was not initially operationalized by the SEC, but instead by the Federal Trade Commission.  Interested in what it looked like?  See here.
