- Biographical or historical data
- Prior to its passage in 1976, Virginia had no comprehensive Public Records Act. In order to rectify this problem, the Committee on the Virginia Public Records Act was formed by Joint Resolution No. 240 on 24 January 1973 directing the Virginia Advisory Legislative Council (VALC) to study and propose a Public Records Act for the Commonwealth. Lewis A. McMurran, Jr., who served as chairman of the council, was named chairman of the committee. In January 1974, the VALC submitted its interim report to the governor and General Assembly concluded that a Public Records Act is necessary for the Commonwealth and recommending the continuance of its study into the act. Another interim report was submitted in 1975 recommending a broad definition of "public records" to the Code of Virginia, legislation for the seizure and return of public records, and further study and development of comprehensive public records legislation. The VALC's final interim report in December 1975 recommended such things as the passage of a Public Records Act, an advisory committee to the State Library Board, and the designation of the State Librarian as the administrator of the Public Records Act.
