  • Function / Content
    This series consists of Memorandum Books, in which the Secretary to the Premier recorded details of his various duties, as well as other information, such as important addresses, and Errors to be Avoided. It does not contain copies of outward memoranda, rather, it was used as a reference by the Secretary and provides an ongoing record of his actions. This series was previously registered with the title Memoranda.

    The Secretary recorded Things to be attended to in this series. If tasks needed to be performed in relation to inward correspondence, the correspondence registration number, details of what was to be attended to, and a note of what was done and when, were recorded.

    Applications for appointments within the Premiers Office were also recorded in this series. The Secretary also kept a record of Orders in Council, Publications of the Government Printing Office, Suggestions, Papers laid before Parliament and Enquiries for Missing Persons.

  • Recordkeeping System
    Different sections of each unit were used to record the various duties of the Secretary. For each category of records, the entries are arranged chronologically.

    Many entries in this series relate to items of inward correspondence which required action by the Secretary. Interested researchers should note the relevant annual single number, prefaced by the letter P, and consult VPRS 1164 Register of Inward Correspondence which provides access to VPRS 1163 Inward Correspondence Files.
