IDAHO OFFICIAL MAPS

Notes:
The maps from the 1930s listed below were issued by the Department of Public Works, which is listed on the front cover. In addition to these maps, various chambers of commerce are known to have issued maps (Boise and the Idaho State Chamber of Commerce maps are known from 1931). These maps appear very similar to the official Department of Public Works edition on the outside, and may very well be identical internally. Such maps are likely to exist from other years as well.

From 1959 through 1972, it is difficult to distinguish the front cover from the back. The side with the “issued by” statement is taken to be the front cover.

The two versions of the 1976-77 map could also be considered 1976 and 1977 editions, with the Gov. Andrus version being 1976 and the Gov. Evans 1977, since Gov. Evans did not take office until Jan. 1977.
