COMMUTATION AND PAROLE BOOKS, 1907-1932.
(3 volumes) 2-3131 January 10, 1907 - April 25, 1923 (Proclamations, Recommendations, Reasons) (1 oversized volume) No. 1, September 1923 - December 1928 (Proclamations) (1 oversized volume) No. 2, January 16, 1929 - December 1, 1932 (Proclamations) (1 oversized volume) This series entitled Commutation and Parole books is composed of volumes which vary to some extent in format and content. The volume dated January 10, 1907 - April 25, 1923, seems to contain only commutation proclamations and the board's reasons for recommending a commutation action. The volumes dated September 1923-December 1928, and January 16, 1929 - December 1, 1932 contain both commutations and parole proclamations. The last two volumes do not contain the board's reasons.
