Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The records of the Department of Aging and its predecessors document California's efforts to protect and care for its ever-growing elderly population. This record group contains 25 cubic feet of text records covering the period 1950-1993 and includes administrative files, program files, correspondence, reports, speeches, research files, history files, and subject files from several prominent divisions within the department.
The initial activities of the state in aging programs can be traced to Governor Earl Warren's administration and the "Interdepartmental Coordinating Committee on Aging." This body, first appointed in 1948, served an advisory function and did not administer any gerontological program funding.
