In 1976, the Governor appointed the Maryland
Advisory Board of the National Historical Publica-
tions and Records Commission to carry out the
historical records program of the National Histori-
cal Publications and Records Commission. The
program is a cooperative effort of the Commission,
state records coordinators, state advisory boards,
and institutions and organizations throughout the
country concerned with the records of the nation.
The National Historical Publications and Re-
cords Commission encourages government and pri-
vate organizations to preserve and make available
for use those records that further an appreciation
and understanding of American history. In addition
to supporting projects that directly relate to a body
of records, the Commission also may support pro-
jects to promote cooperative efforts among institu-
tions and organizations and improve the
knowledge, performance, and professional skills of
those who work with historical records.
In Maryland, the Commission funded a records
assessment and reporting project to evaluate how
institutions care for and provide access to the State's
historical records. Those assessments, with recom-
mendations, were published as Maryland's Record
Heritage: Assessing Needs and Opportunities (1991).
Guidelines and Procedures: Applications and
Grants, a pamphlet describing the program, is avail-
able upon request.
Appointed by the Governor, the Maryland Advi-
sory Board consists of at least seven members, includ-
ing the State Historical Records Coordinator who
serves as chairperson. Members serve three-year
terms. They represent archival and research institu-
tions and organizations in Maryland. The State His-
torical Records Coordinator is the State Archivist.
