PREFACE
In January 1956, the Historical Records Survey, a nation-wide project
of the Works Progress Administration, now the Work Projects Administration,
was organized nationally. Dr. Luther H. Evans was appointed National Director
of the Survey. In March 1956, the Survey began to function in Virginia as part
of the Federal Writers' Project, of which Dr. H. J. Eckenrode was State
Director, and Dr. Lester J. Cappon of the University of Virginia part-thne
Technical Assistant. In November 1956, when the Historical Records Survey be-
came independent of the Federal Writers' Project, Dr. Cappon was appointed part-
time State Director. At the same time Miss Elizabeth B. Parker, a fonner
supervisor of the Survey, was appointed Assistant State Director. When Dr.
Cappon resigned in June 1957, Miss Parker succeeded him as State Director. On
September 5, 1959, the Historical Records Survey of Virginia became a State-
wide non—Federal project, with Miss Parker as State Supervisor.
Likewise in January 1956 the Survey of Federal Archives, a nationewide
project of the`Works Progress Administration, new the`Work Projects Administra-
tion, was organized under the national dircctorship of Dr. Philip M. Hamer,
an official of the National Archives, Washington, D. C. In February 1956, work
WEB started in Virginia with Hr. T. C. Durham as Regional Director. In Septem-
ber 1956, Dr. Kathleen Bruce was appointed Regional Director to succeed Mr.
Durham. On August 1, 1957, the Survey of Federal Archives of Virginia became
a State-wide non-Federal project, with Dr. Bruce as State Director.
On January 1, 1940, the two projects, the Survey of Federal Archives
and the Historical Records Survey of Virginia, were consolidated by the Work
Projects Administration to constitute a new Historical Records Survey project.
Dr. Bruce was appointed State Supervisor, and Miss Parker, Assistant State
Supervisor. Miss Parker resigned from the Historical Records Survey on April
29, 1940.
By authority of the Presidential Letter, E—256, October 18, 1940, the
Historical Records Survey is authorized to "conduct a survey and prepare for
duplication inventories of all official records of the counties and of the
Federal Government (except the Post Office) within the State; conduct a survey
and prepare for duplication inventories of the records of the churches of all
denominations within the State; and copy the imprints of all materials, print-
ed before 1877 within the present boundaries of the United States, which are
in the custody of all public, semi—pub1ic, and notable private libraries with-
in the State." The ultimate objective is to make contributions of public
value.
In conformity with the authorization, the Historical Records Survey
of Virginia has in progress for publication inventories of the archives of
Virginia counties and churches, and of all Federal agencies within the State
except the Post Office. It also has under way a survey of American imprints
prior to 1877. Under the direction of the Federal Government, the inventories
are deposited with the appropriate agency.
The INDEX TO MARRIAGE NOTICES IN THE RELIGIOUS HERALD, RICHMOND, VIRGINIA,
1828-1958, originated as Supplement No. 2 to a volume planned by Miss Parker
on the manuscripts and the printed materials of the Virginia Baptist Historical
_ Society. Supplement No. 1, the INDEX TO OBITUARY NOTICES IN THE RELIGIOUS
HERALD, RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, 1828-1958, originated in the same manner, and was
completed in December 1940. Indexes such as these are not ordinarily under-
_ taken by the Historical Records Survey Projects. The work was authorized in
order to make available to the public the voluminous record of marriages and
deaths that lies buried in the four almost complete files of the RELIGIOUS
