These papers of George Herbert Gray consist entirely of subject files kept during the 1930s while Gray worked for various Connecticut and federal planning agencies, in particular the Connecticut State Planning Board. The files are arranged alphabetically by projects and topics in Gray's original order, and contain approximately 375 letters, memoranda, maps, printed matter, and other papers. Correspondents include a variety of federal, state, and local government offices and officials. Among the topics covered are floods and flood control, town and state planning projects, water legislation and zoning, and rural zoning.
These papers were given to Yale University in 1946 by Mrs. George H. Gray.
