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,
1971 Replacement Volume, Art. 41, Sees. 104-106). Additional copies
are printed for sale to the general public. Clothbound copies at $8.00
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%, 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 the Public Information Officers of each Executive
department as well as to Carl N. Everstine and his staff, for the text
of and the Index to the Constitution as well as for the essays on the
General Assembly sessions of 1970 and 1971. The charts of State
Government were prepared originally by Janet L. Hoffman, formerly
of the Maryland Fiscal Research Bureau. We have revised them as
required. William J. Jabine of the Department of Natural Resources,
is responsible for "Maryland At A Glance" and Leon A. Rubenstein,
Director of the Department of Legislative Reference for the roster of
officials of Baltimore. To the many Clerks and Administrative Assist-
ants, 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 Mrs. Elaine J. Simons, Direc-
tor of Membership Services of the 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 Secre-
tary of State and Margaret W. Lee, Chief Clerk of the Executive De-
partment, who guided us through the Executive Department Files.
As usual, the major burden and the large responsibility for the
MANUAL fell to 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
