This index includes 2,347 recordings from the Governor’s Daily Record of the official acts of each governor from 1870-1939. Information transcribed from these records include the type of act, the Governor administering the act, names of persons involved in the action, the volume and page number of the recording, and notes which may give further clarification.
This index is currently searchable only by the names of persons involved in an act, such as a pardon, extradition, or stay of execution. However, not all recordings are tied to people, such as proclamations and executive orders. To view the entire index, click here.
The original recordings are in bound volumes, arranged chronologically, and give a brief statement of matters acted upon including land purchases, extraditions, appointments, proclamations, executive orders, and pardons. Of note in this collection is the Governor’s correspondence and actions during the 1885 Anti-Chinese Riots in Seattle and Tacoma.
All records are in English.
