Governor - Boards and Commissions Records - State Planning Board Manuals

Identifier: 001-05-103

Scope and Contents

This series contains publications prepared by the State Planning Board to provide the general public and government employees with a clear understanding of the organization, purposes and activities of all Georgia governmental agencies. A brief outline of the history and services provided by each board, commission and department is included along with many organizational charts. As such, it in part parallels the contents of the Georgia Official and Statistical Register published by the Office of Secretary of State since the early 1920s. The State Planning Board was created in 1937 by an act of the General Assembly and was apportioned seven members including the chairman of the State Highway Board, the Commissioner of Public Health and the head of either the Department of Conservation or Education. All other members were to be appointed by the Governor as was the chairman. The manuals published by the Board were to be updated as necessary. Unfortunately, the Archives retained only a fragment of what was undoubtedly a larger number of publications.
