*1,130,566 of the 3,068,604 microfilm images exposed and inspected represent pa-
tients' medical records filmed as a special project for the University of Maryland
Hospital. These records were filmed under our supervision at the Annapolis Record
Center, however, the Hospital provided the necessary funds for personnel, microfilm,
and rental equipment.


Fiscal year 1969 marked the second full year that the Hall of
Records has continued the work which it inherited from the now
abolished Commissioner of the Land Office. This work consists of
servicing the old records, the receiving and recording of all docu-
ments in the patenting-of-land procedures, the reception and indexing
of plats of subdivisions from the counties, and the recording of
papers having to do with the extension of boundaries of municipalities
or other charter amendments. Except for the patenting procedures the
rest of the work is archival.

There were 1,737 subdivision plats received and filed. There
were (Art. 23A, Sections 17A and 19, Annotated Code, 1957, 1969
Cumulative Supplement) 366 charter amendments received and filed.

The land patenting procedure is something else again and in
dealing with it the Archivist puts on his second hat and becomes
Commissioner of Land Patents. For caveat hearings he is assisted by
Richard Rice, Assistant Attorney General, who passes on the admis-
sibility of evidence and writes the opinion. Mr. Skordas becomes clerk
of the court, swearing the witnesses and docketing exhibits. Sylvia A.
