Summary
Comprised of various materials presumably kept by the State Archivist for reference purposes. The files were also referred to as "Dr. Manarin's Agency Histories." Dr. Louis H. Manarin served at State Archivist for many years, and these files most likely came from his office. Most of the files pertain to records management activities and include correspondence, records retention schedules and forms, and records surveys often spanning several decades. Most of the files are arranged by state agency name, and several contain records surveys produced for Virginia state agencies in 1949 by Records Engineering, Inc. of Washington D.C. Other files within the collection were kept strictly as subject files, such as one labled "Organization and Management of the Library," which contains information on changes to the internal arrangement of Library divisions and staff
Note
