Correspondence consists of outgoing letterpress copies to the Commission, mostly for the years 1896-1907, chiefly concerning appointments, promotions, and regulations. There is some intra-Smithsonian correspondence concerning Civil Service appointments and annual reports to the Commission, 1896-1902.
Smithsonian federal employees were placed under the regulations of the Civil Service Commission by order of the President on June 16, 1896. Special records, signed by the Secretary, the Acting Secretary, the Assistant Secretary, and the Chief Clerk, were created to record transactions with the Commission.
