Summary:     Minutes of the Board of Commissioners of State Institutions document the topics of discussion, decisions made, and actions taken by the Board.  The Board is the Florida Cabinet sitting as the executive to conduct the Board's responsibilities.  The records reflect the Board's involvement in managing the facilities of various state institutions, including the state prisons, psychiatric hospitals, juvenile detention homes, and colleges and universities.  Beginning in 1966, much of this material can be found in Series S184, "Cabinet Meeting Minutes."  The volume name changed in 1971 to the Department of General Services after the 1968 re-organization of state government placed this board under that new Department.
