Operational files

Series consists of the main departmental records of the Parks Department.
The series has been divided into five separate sections. Four are chronological divisions; 1931-1936, 1936- 1945, 1946-1950 and 1950-1952. These records are arranged primarily by subject and chronologically within each file. The subjects are arranged alphabetically within each section, and many of them are repeated in each section. A fifth section covers general correspondence from 1935 to 1943. It would appear that this material was not grouped by subject. The file description also includes the original filing numbers
