  • Educational Directories are annual directories of Delaware educational personnel, 1909-2008. The directories include the names and positions of the Board of Education members and Department of Public Instruction/Department of Education administrators and support staff. In the early directories, each public school district name and number is listed with the names of local school board members, teachers, and the grades or subjects that they taught. Beginning with the 1971-1972 directory, private schools and colleges are included. Starting in the 1974-1975 directory, only the school principals and selected administrators are listed.

  • State Manuals include lists of elected and appointed state and local government officials. Though varying from year to year in content, many of the manuals provide salaries, term expiration dates, and geographic information. The later editions include information about Delaware including the state seal, flower, song, bird and other state facts. Photos and biographies of high-level officials are available in later editions as well. While the bulk of the collection spans the mid-20th century, the earliest state manual is from 1898.

  • The Sussex County Voter Register is a 1929 list of registered voters in Sussex County arranged by voting district. The Voter Register includes name, age, town of residence, nation or state of origin, and length of residence in the state, county, and voting district.
