Biographical/Historical Note:     The Division of Cultural Affairs was administratively created within the Dept. of State in 1969 to coordinate the duties and responsibilities of the Secretary of State as they related to the activities, functions, and programs of the Florida Fine Arts Council and four previously independent state agencies, the historical preservation boards of Pensacola and St. Augustine, the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, and the Stephen Foster Memorial Commission.  In 1971, the Division also began serving in an advisory capacity to the State Theatre of Florida.  Control of the Stephen Foster Memorial passed to the Dept. of Natural Resources in 1979 (Ch. 79-322, Laws).  Eventually, the Division served as liaison for the Secretary of State for all the preservation boards until 1983 when these activities were transferred to the Division of Archives, History, and Records Management.
