The Mayor Erastus Corning 2nd Papers comprise 328 cubic feet of former Mayor Corning's official correspondence. Under the legal ownership of the Office of the Mayor of the City of Albany, the papers are housed at the Albany County Hall of Records. Many local residents may recall the controversy around the release of these records - and the subsequent, precedent-setting court case testing the limits of New York State's Freedom of Information Law ("FOIL.")
Mayor Corning's papers provide a fascinating insight into the activities and interests of the man who served as Mayor of Albany for more than forty years. These documents are part of the rich heritage of Albany's past, and the Albany County Hall of Records is proud to make this heritage available to the public.
