Agency History

The State Board of Cosmetology was created in 1927 (ch. 845; in effect July 30, 1927) to give examinations and issue licenses to qualified hairdressers, cosmeticians, manicurists, instructors, cosmetology establishments, etc. The listing below includes all Board records catalogued as of 10-30-75. Individual Finding Aids for portions of this Records Group exist and are so noted. These Finding Aids are ostensibly selected lists of minorities (Black, Male, Mexican-Spanish, Oriental, Foreign born, and Hawaiian) who applied to and were licensed by the Board. Other applications were selected on the basis of hair styles and made of dress. All applications include essential biographical dates as age, residnece, place and date of birth, formal education, work experience and training at a licensed school of cosmetology. Numerical information refers to application numbers. All series are broken series unless otherwise stated.
