[I have cross-posted this question on the opendata.stackexchange (see here) but would like to benefit from your expertise as historians as well.]
I am looking for a list with the most populous cities in each state in 1950 including information on their population. Where could I find such a list?
Note, I have found several lists of say, the 100 largest cities in the US as of that time, but it is important for me to know the single-most populous city for every state (some of which were quite small and do not appear on any top 100 list).
Edit: I just realized that cross-posting is not received very well on stackexchange (see this meta post). If this makes my question on this site inappropriate, please close it.
