RG 13. RECORDS OF THE PENNSYLVANIA HISTORICAL AND MUSEUM COMMISSION

The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission was created in 1945 to consolidate the functions of the Pennsylvania Historical Commission, the State Museum, and the State Archives. Charged with the responsibility of preserving the Commonwealth’s heritage, the commission administers the state archival and records management program, operates and maintains museums and historical sites, assists local historical societies and governmental agencies, and conducts research and publication programs to promote Pennsylvania history. The commission consists of the Bureau of Management Services, the Bureau of Archives and History, the Bureau for of the State Museum, the Bureau of Historic Sites and Museums, and the Bureau for Historic Preservation.

The State Archives was originally established in 1903 as an administrative unit of the State Library and was designated the Division of Public Records. A State Museum was also created under the State Library in accordance with legislation passed in 1905. As part of a general reorganization in 1919, the State Library was named the State Library and Museum. In 1923 the State Library and Museum was made an administrative unit of the Department of Public Instruction as was the Pennsylvania Historical Commission, which had functioned as an independent commission since its establishment in 1913. In 1945, the State Archives, State Museum, and the Pennsylvania Historical Commission were removed from the Department of Public Instruction to form the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.
