Governmental Public Service,  1948-1968 [series]: (18 linear ft.)

James K. Pollock was widely respected for his knowledge of the workings of government on both the state and national level. Because of that he was selected to work on specific problems of government or with specific agencies. Files from these activities, most of which took place after World War II, have been grouped together in the series, Governmental Public Service (1948-1968; 18 linear ft.). This series does not include Pollock's work in Germany after the war. Nor does it include his service with the Michigan Civil Service Study Commission which was a series of files donated to the library many years prior to the major accessioning of Pollock papers in 1969. The subseries under Governmental Public Service consist of Hoover Commission, the Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations, the Michigan Constitutional Convention of 1962-1963, the Citizens Conference on State Legislatures, and the Governor's Special Commission on Legislative Compensation. There is also a miscellaneous topical subseries on issues of congressional organization and reapportionment, among other issues.
