Abstract:

Administrative records of the board and files on the board-sponsored Minnesota gazetteer project of the Work Projects Administration.

The board's administrative records include minutes of its sporadic formal meetings (1937-1969); correspondence and subject files relating to place name derivations, proposed name changes, and the board's general administrative functioning and activities; opinions of the Minnesota attorney general on the board's powers and authority; lists of decisions of the Minnesota and United States geographic boards; and files of correspondence and memoranda on place names arranged by county. The subject files include extensive data on place names in the Chippewa and Superior national forests, and a list of Ojibwe names of northern Minnesota lakes.

The Minnesota gazetteer project, sponsored by the Geographic Board and carried out with WPA funds, was designed to compile and eventually publish a gazetteer of Minnesota place names. The project was never completed. Project files include correspondence, place name bibliographies, maps, and assorted lists of place names giving histories and derivations. They are supplemented by index cards for townships, villages and cities, ghost towns, and the counties of Aitkin, Crow Wing, and Itasca. The card for each place name gives its location by range, township, and section, occasional notes on alternate or previous names, and authority citations.
