Published as an annual supplement to the City Record, the Civil List recorded the name of every employee of the City of New York, his or her home address, annual salary, and date of entrance into the civil service. The listings are broken down by department and further subdivided by functional unit such as precinct, within the police department. The names are not indexed.
