Scope and Content
An advisory committee on mental retardation was appointed by Governor George D. Clyde in August 1964. The committee functioned from 1964-1966. They were charged with developing a statewide comprehensive plan for services to the mentally retarded. This undertaking was supported by funds provided by the U.S. Public Health Service under a Mental Retardation Planning Grant to the State Division of Health. This grant was renewed in 1967, and a second committee was formed for the purpose of implementing the comprehensive plan developed by the former. This series contains materials utilized in both statewide studies as well as copies of each committees' final reports.
This series is available on microfilm.
