The Hall of Records Commission is an ex officio body created by
Chapter 18 of the Acts of 1935 to collect and preserve the historical
records of Maryland and to encourage research and investigation in the
history of the Province and State. Since passage of this Act, additional
responsibilities and duties have been assigned to the Hall of Records
Commission and thereby to the staff of the Hall of Records: to admin-
ister the Records Management Program for State and county govern-
mental agencies; to compile and distribute the MARYLAND MAN-
UAL; and to supervise the microfilming of current land records for
its files and for the State Department of Assessments and Taxation. The
Hall of Records has been made a depository for all publications of State
Agencies, and its staff microfilms the Proceedings of the General As-
sembly at the close of each legislative day. The Hall of Records Com-
mission acts as the historical agency of the State. It participates in the
planning and conduct of historical celebrations, the restoration of
monuments and houses and the search for historical data necessary for
the conduct of the State's business (Annotated Code of Public General
Laws of Maryland, 1957 and 1967 Cumulative Supplement, Article 41,
Sees. 104-106, and Article 54.)

On January 25, 1967 the Archivist assumed the duties of the
