The SEC Historical Society will be featuring the 75th anniversary of Rule 10b-5 on its website in April.
Read the minutes of the Commission meeting adopting 10b-5. For a behind the scenes view, read Mayer Newfield’s February 8, 1996 letter to Milton Freeman; both were present at the Commission meeting.
