Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    This series consists of generally unsigned duplicate copies of correspondence sent from the Governor to various officials and persons. All of the correspondence in this series was drafted on the Governor's behalf by his Official Secretary. Copies were created by stencil until 1931 and by letter press thereafter.

    All correspondence was placed in chronological order, generally within annual folders. Until 1949 this was in the form of spineless volumes. From 1950, items were placed unbound in manilla folders. In both forms, all items of correspondence were then sequentially numbered to create a page or folio reference. The series is controlled by VPRS 7579 Indexes to Outward Correspondence 1912-1955. This series indexes items by the name of the person receiving the correspondence. References in this series are to the page number.

    Many items are annotated by an annual single number reference which refers to the related inward registered correspondence which can thus be located in VPRS 7575.

    This series is possibly a subsequent series to VPRS 1092 Governor's Letter Books. Items of correspondence in that series were transcribed into self indexing volumes. As the contents of that series currently ends in 1908, an exact date as to the change in series is still to be determined.
