CAMP FORREST (TULLAHOMA, TENN.) PHOTOGRAPHS, approximately 1941-1945

Consists of images from Camp Forrest in the form of negatives and black/white photographs. Prints are of an unidentified woman in a suit by a brick wall, three unidentified people in swim suits, and various headshots of unknown women. Negatives include a Christmas crafts exhibit, unidentified artwork, an image of three women by a single-engine airplane, a man on a telephone amid telephone exchange equipment, a dog, laboratory equipment, a drummer, group photos of unidentified individuals, an aerial view of camp, a toddler by a Christmas tree, a (December 1) 1943 certificate for the Volunteer Photographic Society (Chattanooga, Tenn.), and headshots of unidentified women and men. The group photos have a sign in front that reads “Camp Forrest” and are dated 1943. It is possible that the group photos are of or include prisoners of war. It is also conceivable that the artwork was made by POWs at the camp. Two signs with German writing may be seen in the Christmas crafts exhibit image. Loosely translated, one of the signs reads: “Do not bother [touch] the exhibits.”

PUBLIC RECORDS COMMISSION RECORDS, 1956-1996

The Public Records Commission record group spans the years 1956 through 1996, and measures .75 cubic feet. The bulk of the collection, covering the years 1957-1984, consists of minutes from the various Commission meetings, including the first meeting in 1957. Although attempting to meet twice a year, their meeting schedules were often erratic, which is reflected in this small collection. Also in the collection are Records Management Study reports, plans for a new records center, and some very early Records Disposition Authorizations. Audio recordings of the Commission meetings (Box 3) reside in the Tennessee State Library and Archives vault; therefore, a 24 hour notice is required to allow the audio material to acclimate before use.

REAL ESTATE APPRAISER COMMISSION ELECTRONIC FILES, 1992-2012

Consists of electronic files of the Real Estate Appraiser Commission from 1992 to 2012. Includes data from appraisal subcommittee meetings as well as video and/or audio recordings of Real Estate Appraiser Commission meetings, Land Surveyors Board meetings, rule review meetings, and appraisal reviews. Also includes complaints and appraisal review records. One appraisal review, the final CD in Box 2, is marked confidential and is therefore restricted. The materials in this collection are housed in a climate-controlled vault. A 24 hour notice is required before such material can be accessed as the items must be removed from the vault and allowed to acclimate 24 hours before use.

PRIVATE PROTECTIVE SERVICES ADVISORY COMMITTEE MEETING MINUTES, 1995-2006

Consists of Private Protective Services Advisory Committee meeting minutes, 1995-2006. Includes discussion of proposed statutory amendments, rule changes and additions, and licensing and registration requirements. All Private Protective Services Advisory Committee meeting minutes prior to July 1995 were destroyed when the storage area in the basement of the Andrew Johnson Tower flooded during the historic flood in Nashville, Tennessee, in 2010.
