The Indiana Historical Commission was formed on March 8, 1915 in anticipation of the state centennial the following year. The commission consisted of nine members led by Indiana Governor Samuel M. Ralston, including James A. Woodburn, Harlow Lindley, Charles W. Moore, Rev. John Cavanaugh, Frank R. Wynn, Samuel M. Foster, Lew M. O'Bannon, and Charity Dye. The commission's mandate was to collect, edit, and publish materials on Hoosier history and to prepare and execute plans for the state centennial in 1916. The commission still exists today in the form of the Indiana Historical Bureau.
