Expanded Scope and Content
The town of Monrovia was founded by W.N. Monroe in 1886, and the records contained in the town archive date from the first
year of its existence.
These records were received by the Library in September, 1952, after a decision of the Monrovia Town Council to release them
for research purposes. Most of the records are preserved in their original order of filing; some of the correspondence and
reports of town officials, however, were received by the Library in a disorganized condition. These have been grouped by office
of the town government.
The attached finding list must be used for preliminary study of the contents of the archive. If materials are requested for
use, the original filing order within the individual folders must not be disturbed. One folder
only will be used at a time.
