Scope and Content Note

The series consists of microfilm copies of case files and minutes of the Second District Public Service Commission (1907-1921), and also so-called "supplemental case file material" that includes materials not filmed because of size or condition (such as maps, drawings and/or exhibits), or materials that were filmed but for which the film was found to be of poor quality. The Second District's jurisdiction included the entire state except for New York City. The case files typically include petitions, briefs, orders, correspondence, exhibits and testimony. Minutes document the formal regulatory proceedings (actions) of the commission.
