New Orleans (La.). Dept. of Property Management
Director's Office records, 1979
3 cu. ft.

Transferred to the Archives in December 1995 from storage at the Historical Pharmacy Museum. The records are useful in that they document the operations of the Department in a presumably typical year during the last quarter of the century. They deal not only with the operations of the several divisions within the Department but also with services provided by Property Management to other city agencies and other inter-agency relationships. Interactions with the community at large are also documented by several subject files (e.g., Mardi Gras).

The ca. 10 cu. ft. of materials originally accessioned were reduced to 3 ft. through appraisal. Files containing copies of City Council agendas, departmental reading files, and various personnel files were removed from the records and destroyed. The Civil Service file remaining was heavily weeded to remove all materials dealing with individual employees rather than with individual positions. Some files dealing with other city agencies were removed when their contents were deemed to be unredeemably routine in nature.
