EXECUTIVE ORDER NUMBER FIFTY-FOUR

TO: Heads of All State Departments and Agencies

RE: Change of Name of "Division of Archives and Cultural
Affairs" to "Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs"

WHEREAS, the Division of Archives and Cultural Affairs was created by 57 Delaware Laws, Chapter 570 as part of the Office of the Secretary of State under the Reorganization of State Government; and

WHEREAS, that same 57 Delaware Laws, Chapter 570 conferred upon the Governor and the Secretary of State the power to establish, consolidate, or combine, divisions within the Department of State; and

WHEREAS, it has become desirable to expand the purview of responsibility of the present Division of Archives and Cultural Affairs to include a whole range of subjects related to Delaware history, and not simply archival matters; and

WHEREAS, the aforementioned Division will have increased responsibility for activities concerning the upcoming Bicentennial Celebration; and

WHEREAS, the name "Division of Archives and Cultural Affairs, appears inappropriate in light of the above; and

WHEREAS, the name "Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs" more aptly describes the activities and concerns of the Division.

Delaware, and with the concurrence of the Secretary of State, do hereby order that:

The name of .the Division of Archives and Cultural Affairs of the Department of State is hereby changed to "Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs."

APPROVED This 25th day of May, 1971
