The Inventory of Federal Archives in the States is one of the products
of the work of the Survey of Federal Archives, which operated as a nation-
· wide project of the Works Progress Amninistration from January 1956 to June
30, 1937, and has been continued in North Carolina 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, acknowledgments,
and general discussions of the location, condition, and content of federal
archives in the states. Succeeding series contain the detaihed information
secured by workers of the Survey, in inventory form, a sewarate 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 No. l is a general introduction to the field organization
and records of the governmental agency concerned; the succeeding numbers
contain the inventory oroner, 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. 3, that for Arkansas No. 4, etc.
For each local office information regarding each series, or unit of re-
lated 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), a statement of frequency and purpose of use,
form of the reanrd 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 number or other identifying
information, and finally, the number of the Form 58SA on which this infor-
mation 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.
A When it contains substantial information on addenda sheets which has not
been included in the mimeographed abstract, indication of this is given by
, use of the reference "See addenda."
In North Carolina the work of the Survey was under the direction of
Dr. C. C. Crittenden, Regional Director, with hiss Mattie Erma Edwards as
assistant, from its inception until June 1937. Since ttat time it has
been under the supervision of Kiss Emily Qridgers. This Inventory of the
records of the Department of Commerce in North Carolina was prepared in
J the Raleigh office of the Survey and was edited in the Washington office
_ before final typing.

; the operation and maintenance of the laboratory, directs and conducts re-
search on shellfish problems at the laboratory, and has jurisdiction of
p field investigations from Virginia to Florida, He reports directly to
1 Washington, Administrative and finaicial records of the station from 1899
» to 1902 can probably be found in Washington, Biological records are
O` filed in this office, All records are stored in room 47 in the attic of
‘ the station, In most instances the number and type of containers was not
i given, The station is reached by a bridge which connects Piver’s Island
with U.S. Highway 70, An aquarium is open to the public from 8:00 a,m,

fr tion of fish. He cooneratcs closely with the Division of Inquiry of the l
{1 Qureau of Fisheries in Washington and the State Deoartment of Conservation
%i and Develonment in Raleigh. All records are ~reserved.
s The Weldon substation was first overated in 1903, though records show
§ that strioed bass eggs were hatched at Weldon as early as 1873 in exweri-
( mental work by the Government and the state. Owing to oollution of the
§ Roanoke River, the substation was closed after the 1923 season. Records
1 transferred to Edonton at that time are filed with those of the Edcnton
§ Station. The substation was rcoo=nsd in 1928 when exwerimcnt showed that
§ the city water was satisfactory for hatching, but it was again closed after
1 the 1932 season and records for 1928—19"2 were transferred to Edenton.
{ since 1937 when it was reobened, the substation has been located in a new
{ building of the State Department of Conservation and Develooment.
