Appointment Files, 1990-1995,
(99.25 ft.).
Scope and Contents of the Appointment Files
Types of records include application forms, correspondence, biographical information sheets, financial statements, photographs, phone messages, questionnaires, and related materials. Records date from 1990 to 1995 and are the governor's appointments office files on nominees for appointed positions. Red dots on folder labels denote persons appointed to positions, and these files contain a full range of documents, including state appointment applications, background applications, financial statements, biographical information sheets, letters and biographical data from applicants, letters from the appointments office, letters of recommendation, letters of resignation, questionnaires, and other material supplied by the nominees, including photographs, clippings, printed material, and press releases. Folders without dots generally contain letters of interest from individuals, letters of recommendation, and letters from the appointments office noting the individual's interest in a position. Files with black dots denote persons interested in appointments during the transition period in late 1990 and early 1991. Appointment files complement, but are not the same as, Press Office appointments releases. These appointments files do not contain press releases.

Correspondence relating to the appointment of Senator Lloyd Bentsen's successor is included at the end as well as status reports, 1992, and a listing of appointments by counties, 1994.
RESTRICTION: Records are restricted due to files containing information that is an exception to public disclosure: home address, home telephone number, and social security number of current and former officials and employees of a governmental body.
