Mental Health - Central State Hospital - Weekly Bulletin (Publication)

Identifier: 082-03-022

Scope and Contents

This series contains a continuation of the record set of the official employee newsletter of the Central State Hospital in Milledgeyille, Georgia, As can be ascertained by the series titles. this publication underwent two name changes since its inception in 1966. The first issue of the Central Georgia Human Resources Center Bulletin appeared on June 5, 1974 and on May 14, 1975 the name was changed again to Central State Hospital Bulletin. Despite these changes, the format has remained remarkably consistent through the years. A typical issue might include (1) an editorial submitted by one of the administrators of the Hospital on some policy or program of the institution, (2) personnel changes, (3) announcements of changes in schedules, (4) pleas for support for charity or membership drives among the employees, (5) announcements of staff social or recreational activities, (6) news of special charity donations to the Hospital, (7) notices listing teaching aids such as audio or video tapes available for loan to staff members, (8) news of articles authored by staff members, (9) notes of appreciation to volunteers at the Hospital, (10) a section of short announcements such as items lost and found and items for sale and (11) a campus calendar for the week. One trend that is discernible in the publication over the years is one towards greater length. Consequently, a small rectangular box in the upper right hand corner of the cover page was added to serve as a finding aid directing the reader's attention to important notices and announcements. For the initial publications of this series dating from before the creation of the Department of Human Resources in the governmental reorganization of 1972, see Record Group 26, Georgia Department of Public Health, Sub-Group 12, Central State Hospital, Series 89.
