Scope and Content

The Governor has the power to appoint members to various State boards and commissions; this series contains resumes, applications, appointment notices, and correspondence pertaining to those appointments, preserved by Governor Matheson and his staff. Included in this series are applications received via the "SEARCH" ("State Efforts to Attract Responsible Citizen Help") system, a special citizens' advisory panel organized by Matheson in his first administration. The purpose of the SEARCH panel was to review all board and commission applications from throughout the state. It is likely that Matheson did not use the SEARCH system during his second administration. Linda Waddingham served as the Governor's Scheduling Coordinator and as such handled all of the administrative processing of board and commission appointments. Some of the materials in this series are in reference not to boards or commissions but to high-level positions in state government agencies, such as the materials regarding the appointment of an Insurance Commissioner during Matheson's first administration.

Arrangement

Chronological by term, thereunder alphabetical by document type, thereunder alphabetical by board or commission.

Research Note

This series is divided into Matheson's first administration (January 1977-January 1981) and second administration (January 1981-January 1985), thereunder arranged alphabetically by document type or types, thereunder by title of the board or commission. A small amount of materials from Governor Rampton's administrations is included in the beginning of the series. For Matheson's first administration, the "applications and correspondence" files for each board or commission contain lists of board member nominees or current members, followed by any related correspondence and board information, followed by applications (which may include resumes) which are arranged alphabetically by last name of the applicant. For this first administration, "appointment notices" follow the "applications and correspondence section"; these notices are filed alphabetically by name of board or commission. For Matheson's second administration, materials regarding board and commission appointments are filed somewhat differently than those from his first administration. Correspondence, notes, and appointment notices for each board or commission are included in the same file. No applications for board or commission appointments seem to exist for Matheson's second administration.
