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 nationewide project of the Works Progress Administration
from January l, l956 to June 30, 1957. It has been continued since
that date as a state project of the`Works Progress Administration and
of the Work Projects Administration, and later as a unit of the His-
torical Records Survey, a state project of the same Administration.
The plan for the organization of the Inventory is as follows:
_ Series I consists of reports on the administration of the Survey, .
l acknowledgments, and general discussions of the location, condition,
and content of federal archives in the states. Succeeding series
contain the detailed information secured by worhers of the Survey,
° in inventory form, a separate series number being assigned to each
` ` of the executive departments (except the Department of State) and
. .other major units of the Federal Government. Within each series Ho. l
is a general introduction to the field organization and records of the '
_ governmental agency concerned; the succeeding numbers contain the in-
ventory proper, separate nrmbers being assigned to each state in alpha-
betical order. Thus, in each series, the inventory for Alabama is No. 2,
` that for Arizona No. 5, that for ArLansas 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
L was secured), general description of informational content, description
of the system.of filing or indexing (if any), a statement of frequency
and purpose of use, form of the record itself (bound volumes, sheets in
folders, etc.), linear footage, description of the containers, physical
condition of—the records (not stated if satisfactory), location by room
·numbcr or other identifying inforrmtion, and finally, the number of the
Form 5SSA on which this information was originally recorded by a Survey
worker and from which it was abstracted for the inventory. This form is
on file in The National Archives. Uhen it contains substantial inforhu
` mation on addenda sheets which has not been included in the mimoographed
A abstract, irdieation of this is given by use of the reference “See adaendaT"
` ln Kentucky the work of the Survey was undertaken by Judge Samuel C.
Williams, with Kr. John Wilson Townsend as his assistant, from its con-
ception until October l956. Since that time hr. Townsend has been in
A charge of the preparation of the Inventory, although in September lS3Q
ji—— the Survey of Federal Archives ceased to be a state project and became
E a unit of the Historical Records Survey and Kr. Townsend became State
Li Supervisor of the Inventory of American Ivmrints.
\— lThis inventory of the records of the Department of Har in Kentucky was
i. prepared in the Louisville office of the Survey and was edited before
final typing by Dr. Richard R. Stenberg of the Washington office.
