The first item level indexes produced by the Maryland State Archives (then known as the Maryland Hall of Records) were called calendars and contained summaries (abstracts) of documents covering the late colonial and revolutionary war era of Maryland history. They were all documents that at one time had been entrusted to the care of the Maryland Historical Society and had been bound into volumes with color leather bindings, hence they were called the 'Rainbow Series.'
