The State Historical Records Advisory Board
was appointed in 1976 by the Governor to carry
out the national historical records program of the
National Historical Publications and Records
Commission. The program is a cooperative effort
of the Commission, the State Records Coordin-
ators, the Advisory Boards, and institutions and
organizations throughout the country concerned
with the records of the nation.
Through its national historical records pro-
gram, the National Historical Publications and
Records Commission encourages a greater effort
at all levels of government and by private
organizations to preserve and make available for
use those records, generated in every facet of life,
that further an understanding and appreciation
of American history. In the public sector, these
historical records document significant activities
of State, county, municipal, and other units of
government. In the private sector, historical
records include manuscripts, personal papers,
and family or corporate archives that are
maintained by a variety of general repositories as
well as materials in special collections relating to
particular fields of study, including the arts,
business, education, ethnic and minority groups,
immigration, labor, politics, the professions, reli-
gion, science, urban affairs, and women. In addi-
tion to supporting projects relating directly to a
body of records, the Commission may also sup-
port projects to promote cooperative efforts
among institutions and organizations and to im-
prove the knowledge, performance, and profes-
sional skills of those who work with historical
