This series consists of several reports and studies made at each of the various penal facilities in the State. Included are: (1) 1967 Report of Sanitary Conditions (2) reports on prison industries (3) general correspondence, reports and studies. The summation of the 1967 Report of Sanitary Conditions was taken from an earlier inventory created in 1981.
This series contains a variety of general office correspondence, reports and other printed information concerning the correctional institutions across the State. These files do not, however, represent all of the correspondence concerning the various camps and branches, as there are identical subject file titles in many instances in RGSGSERIES 21-2-24, General Administrative Subject Files of the Director.
These bound volumes are introduced with a report of the nutritional breakdown of the menus. The majority of the file consists of daily menus for all institutions in Georgia which are detailed from snacks to main courses. The lunch menus are for offenders in the prison only and do not cover those on road crews, etc.
These monthly reports by the lessees of convicts to the Prison Commission give the name of the camp and the contractor, followed by an alphabetical listing of the convicts including: (1) race, (2) age, (3) crime, (4) county of conviction, (5) length of sentence, (6) date received and discharged, and (7) remarks (the latter usually left blank). The reports were put into binders by the Prison Commission.
These monthly reports give the name and location of the camp and the month at the top of the page. For each convict punished is indicated the name, date, cause or offense, and extent of the punishment. See RGSGSERIES 21-1-11 for similar material.
The entries in these books are arranged by month. For each month, the names and job titles of the guards and other employees are listed, showing for each day of the month whether or not the employee worked and the total salary paid him for the month.
This book, apparently kept by the Principal Keeper, records the amount due the State by lessees for the hire of convicts. Each lessee's convicts are listed for given periods of time showing the amount due the State for each convict. At the end of each list is the total due and often a statement of when the account was sent to the State Comptroller General for collection.
Seven of these volumes give for each day the number of prisoners at the camps and a daily accounting of the quantity of various items of food, clothing, tobacco, soap, kerosene oil and similar items furnished to them. The inclusive dates vary from book to book. The information is arranged by camp (with one to three camps in each volume) and then by date.
