Biographical/Historical Note:     The State Welfare Board was created in 1937 (Ch. 18285, Laws of Florida). It assumed the duties of the State Board of Social Welfare (1935, Ch. 17477, Laws) which had replaced the State Board of Public Welfare (1927, Ch. 12288, Laws).  The State Welfare Board administered the State Department of Public Welfare and twelve district welfare boards. The agencies administered state and federal funding for social welfare services and relief aid.  In 1969, the State Department of Public Welfare became the Division of Family Services under the Dept. of Health and Rehabilitative Services (Ch. 69-106, Laws). The State Welfare Board was replaced by the Family Services Advisory Council.  Family services functions were later assumed by the new Department of Children and Families (Ch. 96-403, Laws).
