HALL OF RECORDS COMISSION

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
administer the Records Management Program for State and County governmental
agencies; to compile and distribute the MARYLAND MANUAL; 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. Also, its
staff microfilms the Proceedings of the General Assembly at the close of
each legislative day. The Hall of Records Commission 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.

On January 25, 1967, the Archivist assumed the duties of the
Commissioner of the Land Office as Commissioner of Land Patents (Article
54, Sections 12 et s»q.)

Chapter 97 of the Acts of 1970, which was approved April 15,
1970, and became effective on August 1, 1970, placed the Hall of Records
Commission in the secretariat of General Services. This resulted in a
number of changes, one of which is that the Secretary of the Department
of General Services replaces the Governor of the State of Maryland as
a member of the Hall of Records Commission. The members of the Hall of
Records Commission for fiscal year 1971 and the offices which entitled them
to membership were the following:

HONORABLE HALL HAMMOND, Chairman

Chief Judge, Court of Appeals of Maryland

DR. RICHARD D. WEIGLE, Vice Chairman
