  • Governor Dalton's 1978 papers were originally received in the Archives on 20 November 1980 (accession 31016), before being removed during the summer of 1981 for purging by the Governor's Office of what was considered items of a personal nature in accordance with Sec. 2.1-45 of the 1950 CODE OF VIRGINIA. The records, along with the 1979 papers, were returned to the Archives on 14-15 January 1982 (accession 31998). Two boxes of the purged material (1978-1979 News Summaries) were discovered in the basement of the 9th Street Office Building in 2000 and were transferred to the Archives (accession 37787)
