Subseries 12. Weekly Reports

Scope and Content Notes:

Governor Thornburgh began requesting weekly reports from members of his cabinet during his eight-year term as governor of Pennsylvania. He continued this practice during his three years as Attorney General. These weekly reports contain information from within each division and office of the Department of Justice and will provide researchers with an excellent overview of DOJ during Thornburgh's years. It should be noted that in 1990 Attorney General Thornburgh was responsible for changing the name of Land and Natural Resources to the Environment and Natural Resources Division to better reflect its mission.

In 1988, these reports were bi-weekly. The 1989-1991 reports were weekly. There are occasional red pen annotations. The classified department reports are excluded, of course, which include DEA and the FBI. During 1991, the DEA did not supply any reports to the Attorney General because all the reports were classified and kept separately.

These reports originally were kept in several sets, for administrative convenience: August 1988-September 1989, October1989-March 1990, April 1990-December 1990 and January-August 1991. However the basic organization now is alphabetical by name of the office, division or commission, and chronological within each.
