The Legislature of 1931, by Joint Resolution No. 12, authorized the
Governor to appoint a commission of seven members, whose duty it
shall be to study the Blue Sky Laws of this and other States, and make
recommendations on the subject to the Governor and the General As-
sembly. The members of this commission are:
William Preston Lane, Jr., Attorney General of Maryland, Baltimore.
Herbert H. O’Conor, State’s Attorney of Baltimore City, Baltimore.
Charles H. Baetjer, Calvert Building, Baltimore.
T. Stockton Matthews, Redwood and South Streets, Baltimore.
Austin J. Lilly, Maryland Casualty Company, Baltimore.
Harold E. West, Chairman Public Service Commission, Baltimore.

The Legislature of 1931, by Joint Resolution No. 22, directed the
State Roads Commission, supplemented by such other assistance as the
Governor might deem advisable, to investigate thoroughly the prac-
ticability of a bridge or tunnel across the Chesapeake Bay, and if the
same should be deemed practicable from an engineering and traffic
standpoint, then to recommend the proper location and the proper
method of financing the undertaking. This commission is required to
report its findings to the Governor as promptly as possible, in order
that the Governor may make the same public, and take such further
action thereon as he may deem best for the interest of the State. The
memhers of this commission are:

Howard Bruce, Chairman, Elkridge.
John K. Shaw, Eccleston.
B. Howell Griswold, Jr., Baltimore.
Donald Symington, Garrison.
Robert Lacy, Member State Roads Commission, Baltimore.

The Commission felt that the financial situation which developed in
1932 and 1933 made it impracticable for the State to consider building
the bridge, and the Commission did not submit any formal report to the
Legislature of 1933 because of negotiations with the Reconstruction
Finance Corporation which were still pending when the 1933 Session
of the Legislature adjourned.


Chapter 526 of the Acts of 1933 created the Water Resources Com-
mission with general power to devise and develop a general water re-
sources conservation program for the State. The members of this
commission are as follows:

Abel Wolman, Chief Sanitary Engineer, State Health Department,
Edward B. Mathews, State Geologist.
Harold E. West, Chairman, Public Service Commission.
Philip B. Penman, Munsey Building, Baltimore.
Richard Memmers, General Superintendent, American Sugar Refin-
ing Company, Baltimore.
Dr. Thomas W. Keen, Mayer of Cumberland, Cumberland.
Frank H. Dryden, City Engineer, Salisbury.
Robert E. Morse, Cbiaf Engineer, Washington Suburban Sanitary
Commission, Hyattsville.
