Abstract:

The state secretary (since 1961 through a unit currently called the Commissions Section) attests to all commissions of office signed by the governor, administering the oath of office to and/or recording the name of these and other public appointees. Having taken the oath of office, each official signs a certificate (see: Qualification certificates of appointed officials ((M-Ar)181)) and register of qualification. From 1858 to 1968 two separate sets of registers were maintained, one by the secretary (spines often marked secretary's department) and another by the Council (spines marked executive). Executive registers were frequently signed by the governor as the qualifying officer. The two were combined in one volume (for Executive Dec 1968-May 1976, Jan 1979; and for the secretary Aug 1979-Feb 1980) after which it appears only the secretary volumes were maintained.

Information in register includes name, office, name and address of qualifying officer, date of commission, and date of qualification. The entry is signed or initialed by the qualifying officer.
