The nine-member Commission to Investigate the Advisability of Consolidating Certain State Boards and Commissions and to Investigate the Public Health Laws was established by Act of the General Assembly on February 9, 1915. Its function was to study and report by April 1 on:
"The reorganization and consolidation of the various state and county boards and commissions with a view to greater economy and efficiency: The revision of the public health laws with the purpose of fixing more definitely the responsibility of officials, and of eliminating waste and duplications of authority and of preventive laws, with the purpose of ascertaining whether the constructive work of medicine and science may not be more efficient than is possible under present law."
Information was collected from the boards, commissions and agencies concerned, and seventeen public hearings and several conferences were held. In its final report (Report of a Commission…, Hartford, 1915, C469r), principal attention was devoted to the Board of Agriculture and related groups, the various labor-related agencies and the medical and health-related boards and commissions; in these three cases the Commission recommended consolidation into three new departments.

R.A. Winslow, Jr., Clerk for the Commission deposited the records with the State Library in 1915, presumably after the Commission issued its report to the General Assembly.
State Library staff placed the records in the classified manuscript collection in the probate vault as D/ C734c. State Archivist Robert Claus later processed the records into RG 28. In 1994, State Archives staff consolidated the collection with other records of similar commissions in a new RG 28.
