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, 1967;
1966 Replacement Volume, Art. 41, Sees. 104-106). Additional copies
are printed for sale to the general public. Clothbound copies at $7.00
and paperbound copies at $6.00 are available at the Hall of Records,
Annapolis. Purchasers residing in Maryland must also pay a sales tax
of 4%.$.28 for clothbound, $.20 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 1968 and 1969. The charts of State Government were pre-
pared originally by Janet L. Hoffman, formerly of the Fiscal Research
Bureau. We have revised them as required. Ralph C. Hammer, Assist-
ant to the Secretary of the Department of Natural Resources, is
responsible for "Maryland At A Glance" and C. Frank Poole, Records
Management 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 and Directors to the Boards of
County Commissioners and each Secretary to County Councils, we
extend special thanks for helping us with the county sections. We
are also grateful to Robert J. Helfrich, Executive Secretary, Maryland
Municipal League, for providing us with the names of city, town and
village officers. We benefited from the collaboration 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.
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.
MORRIS L. RADOFF,
Archivist and Records Administrator
