Incorporation Record Books were first scheduled as permanent records in 1978. This series originally had 10 volumes and the series ended in 1961. However, volumes 3-10 were photocopies of the Incoporation Case Files contained in Series 14932. The decision was made to deaccession these records. The two record books will be filmed and destroyed. Microfilming of the records is pending. This entire series was processed by David Clark in August 1996.
