Excerpt from The Second Biennial Report of the North Carolina Historical Commission, 1906-1908 To His Excellency. Governor Robert B. Glenn: For the information of your Excellency and of the General Assembly, we beg to submit a brief report of the creation, organization and work of the North Carolina Historical Commission during the past two years. Creation and Organization. The North Carolina Historical Commission was created by act of the General Assembly of 1903 (chapter 767 of the Public Laws of 1903). Under the provisions of this act the Governor was to appoint a commission of five, who were to serve for a term of two years, without salary, per diem or mileage. The act declared it to be their duty "to have collected from the files of old newspapers, from court records, church records and elsewhere" valuable documents pertaining to the history of North Carolina, "to have such documents edited and published by the State Printer as other public printing, and distributed by the State Librarian under the direction of the commission." The commission was authorized "to expend a sum not exceeding $500 annually in the collection and transcription of documents." Under this act Governor Aycock appointed W. J. Peele, of Raleigh; J. D. Hufham, of Henderson; F. A. Sondley, of Asheville; Richard Dillard, of Edenton, and R. D. W. Connor, of Wilmington. The fact that the members of the commission lived in widely separated parts of the State, and the fact that the law expressly forbade the payment of their expenses, made it difficult for them to attend properly to their duties. Efficient work was, accordingly, impossible, and your Excellency, realizing this fact, thought it wise, in 1905, to appoint on the commission persons residing nearer to each other. Accordingly, the following were appointed: W. J. Peele, of Raleigh; J. Bryan Grimes, of Raleigh; Thomas W. Blount, of Roper; Charles L. Raper, of Chapel Hill, and R. D. W. Connor, of Raleigh. More and better work was accomplished than before. It soon became evident, however, that if the commission was to do the work expected of it, a different and more effective organization was necessary. In 1907, therefore, the General Assembly amended the act of 1903, enlarged the powers and increased the duties of the commission. (Chapter 714 of the Public Laws of 1907.) By the provisions of this act the members of the commission are appointed for terms of two, four and six years, their successors to serve for six years. They receive no salary or per diem, but are "allowed their actual expenses when attending to their official duties."
