City documents received and/or issued by the San Francisco Office of the Controller as fiscal accountant for unemployment
relief services during the Great Depression. The collection consists of a report by the Director of Relief for fiscal year
1932-1933; minutes of the Citizens’ Emergency Relief Committee (originally named Citizens’ Advisory Relief Committee) for
Sept. 3, 1932 - May 1937; Unemployment Relief Program Reports of the San Francisco Office of the Controller for fiscal years
July 1, 1934 - June 30, 1937 (there is also a cover sheet for the report for July 1, 1932 - June 30, 1934, which is missing
from the collection); and a report called "Suggested Relief Program 1933-1934," also issued by the Office of the Controller.
The San Francisco Office of the Controller is responsible for managing the accounting, auditing, and other financial functions
of the City. In its capacity as fiscal accountant for unemployment relief services during the Great Depression, the Office
of the Controller received documents and reports from the newly-established Director of Relief and the Citizens' Advisory
Relief Committee (which later became the Citizens' Emergency Relief Commitee), as well as issuing its own reports and recommendations.
