FOREWORD
THE MARYLAND MANUAL is published every even year by the
State of Maryland, and copies are distributed without charge to the
public libraries, agencies of state and county government, school
libraries, members of the General Assembly and others as prescribed
by law {Annotated Code of Public General Laws of Maryland, 1957;
1965 Supplement, Art. 41, Sec. 106). Additional copies are printed for
sale to the general public. Clothbound copies at $4.50 and paperbound
copies at $3.50 are available at the Hall of Records, Annapolis. Pur-
chasers residing in Maryland must also pay a sales tax of 3%$.14
for clothbound, $.11 for paper, except for those who have been granted
tax exemption.
The primary purpose of the MANUAL is to present to the citizens
of Maryland, as briefly as possible, a description of their government,
its functions, its agencies, its personnel, and its cost. The MANUAL
also contains similar information for county government plus a valu-
able directory of local officers not available elsewhere. The reader will
find in addition, the Charter and the Constitution, mainsprings of our
political life, and much descriptive and historical material. He is
urged to examine the Table of Contents and the Indexes with care.
Obviously, the MANUAL is more a compilation than an original
work. We are indebted for material to many agencies and individuals,
among others, to Carl N. Everstine for the text of, and the Index to,
the Constitution as well as for the essays on the General Assembly
sessions of 1964 and 1965. The charts of State Government were pre-
pared originally by Janet L. Hoffman then of the Fiscal Research
Bureau. They have been revised as required. William H. Bayliff,
Executive Secretary of the Board of Natural Resources, is responsible
for "Maryland At A Glance" and C. Frank Poole, Records Manage-
ment Officer of the City of Baltimore, for the roster of officials of
that City. To the many Clerks of Court, Registers of Wills, and
Clerks and Administrative Assistants to the Boards of County Com-
missioners we extend special thanks for helping us with the county
section. We are also grateful to Daniel R. Thompson, Executive
Secretary, Maryland Municipal League, for providing us with the
names of city, town and village officers. We benefited from the col-
laboration of Chester F. Tucker, Deputy Secretary of State, and
Margaret W. Lee, Chief Clerk of the Executive Department, who
guided us through the Executive Appointment files.
Those of our own staff who were helpful were Gust Skordas and
Patricia C. Goldsborough. Special mention is due to Rose M. DiStefano
who helped in the preparation of the indexes, and to Barbara Lambden
who did most of the typing.
As usual, the major burden and the large responsibility for the
MANUAL fell on Frank White. It is his duty to begin the new
MANUAL when the old one is hardly off the press, to collect the
information needed, process it and see the book to completion.
We have added in this MANUAL certain new information which
we think will be useful: A historical list of the Mayors of Baltimore
and Vital Statistics of the Governors of Maryland, 1777-1867.
