Georgia Official and Statistical Register
As of 18 January 2008, the Georgia Official and Statistical Register was added as a new, public resource from the Digital Library of Georgia into the GALILEO demo system. It is available for your preview at http://dlg.galileo.usg.edu/statregister/.
The Georgia Official and Statistical Register, published from 1923-1990 by the Georgia Department of Archives and History, is commonly known as the Georgia Blue Book. Considered an important reference work for historical research, the Register covers Georgia’s executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government, providing biographical sketches of elected and other state officials. Georgia members of U.S. Congress and federal judges are included, as are county officials and regents of the university system. The Blue Books contain election returns, provide basic reference data on Georgia counties, and cover Georgia miscellany, such as the state flag, state flower, state song, rosters of Georgia governors, and legal holidays.
