- Biographical or historical data
- In January 1963, an archaeologist joined the staff of the Virginia State Library within the Historical Publications Division. The archaeologist, Howard A. MacCord, Sr., and his staff surveyed sites of new or proposed highway construction as well as sites observed by citizens. The archaeology section focused on correspondence related to archaeology in Virginia, compiling reports on fieldwork, accessioning specimens and giving talks on archaeology to Virginia citizens and the archaeological profession. The archaeologist was often assisted by members of the Archaeological Society of Virginia and later collaborated with archaeologists at the Virginia Historic Landmarks Commission. In 1969, the archaeology section (and publication division) was moved to the Archives Division within the Virginia State Library. In another reorganization, the archaeology functions of the Virginia State Library were transferred to the Virginia Historic Landmarks Commission on 1 July 1976.
