The Mississippi Department of Corrections is tasked with providing and promoting public safety through efficient and effective offender custody, care, control, and treatment consistent with sound correctional principles and constitutional practices. The annual report (July–June) presents an overview of the department's operations. The Department of Archives and History has electronic (PDF) copies of the report from 1981. Paper copies of the 1981-2001 and 2003 reports were scanned and saved as PDFs by the Department of Corrections. More recent reports were "born digital" and saved as PDFs.
Series 1695 consists of forty-five black-and-white photographs of Mississippi State Penitentiary (Parchman) taken during the administration of Superintendent C. E. Breazeale and organized by subject in a loose-leaf booklet. The booklet was prepared under the supervision of Sgt. P. O. Miller, Identification Officer, to document improvements made on the buildings and grounds of the penitentiary's agricultural facilities. Photographs show livestock, penitentiary officials, and inmates.
