The Inventory of Federal Archives in the States, is one of the
products of the work of the Survey of Federal Archives, which oper-
ated as a nation—wide project of the Works Progress Administration
from January 1, 1956 to June BO, 1957, and has been continued in
Kentucky since that date as a state project of that Administration.
The plan for the organization of the Inventory is as follows:
Series I consists of reports on the administration of the Survey, ac-
knowledgments, and general discussions of the location, condition, and
content of federal archives in the states. Succeeding series contain
the detailed information secured by workers of the Survey, in inven-
tory form, a separate series number being assigned to each of the ex-
ecutive departments (except the Department of State) and other major
units of the Federal Government, Within each series Ko. l is a gonor-
al introduction to the field organization and records of the govern-
mental agency concerned; the succeeding numbers contain the inventory
proper, separate numbers being assigned to each state in alphabetical
order. Thus, in each series, the inventory for Alabama is No. 2, that
for Arizona No. 5, that for Arkansas ho. 4, etc.
For each local office information regarding each series, or unit of
related records, is presented in the following order: title, inclusive
dates ("to date" indicating an open file at the time the information
was secured), general description of informational content, description
of the system of filing or indexing (if any). & statement of frequency
and purpose of usc, form of the record itself (bound volumes, sheets
in folders, etc.), linear footage, description of the containers, physi-
cal condition of the records (not stated if satisfactory), location by
room number or other identifying information, and finally, the number
, of the Form BBSA on which this inf;rmation was originally recorded by
a Survey worker and from which it was abstracted for the Inventory.
This form is on file in The lational Archives. When it contains sub-
stantial information on add nda sheets which has not been included in
the mimeographcd abstract, indication of this is ~iven by use of the
reference "Sec addenda."
In Yxntucky the work of the Survey was undert kun bv Judge "wmuel
C. Milliams, with Hr. John Tilson Eownr nd as his assistant, from its
inception until October 1956. Linen that tim~ Tr. Townsrnd has been
in charge of the project. This inventory of tho r cords of the brpwrt-
ment of Labor in kentucky was prepared in the Louisville office of the
Survey and was efitcd before final typing by miss Ylizab th Edwards of
the Washington office. It is To reduce in min o rr hed form through
