The Inventory of Federal Archives in the States is one of the
products of the Survey of Federal Archives, which operated as a
nation-wide project of the Works Progress Administration from
January 1, 1936 to June 30, 1937, and has been continued in
California since that time as a state project of that Adminis-
The plan for the organization of the Inventory is as follows:
Series I consists of reports on the administration of the Survey,
acknowledgements, and general discussions of the location, condi—
tion, and content of federal archives in the states. Succeeding
serieS'contain the detailed information secured by workers 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 No. l is a general introduction to the field organiza—
tion and records of the governmental agency concerned; the suc-
ceeding 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. 3, that for Arkansas No. 4, etc.
,> . For each local office information regarding each series, or
.; £59 v . unit of related records, is presented in the following order:
f?%;, title, inclusive dates ("to date"‘indicating an open file at the
_ I rest time the information was secured), general description of infor-
mational content, description of the system of filing or index—
ing (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 condi-
tion of the records (not stated if satisfactory), location by
room number or other identifying information, and finally, the
number of the Form 588A on which this information was original-
ly recorded by a Survey worker and from which it was abstracted
for the Inventory. This form is on file in The National Archives.
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 California the work of the Survey was under the direction
of Mr. Charles L. Stewart, Regional Director for California and
Nevada, from its inception until June 30, 1937. From that time
until September 1, 1937 the work was under the supervision of
its. Thelma Ziemer, State Director of the Historical Records
Survey. Since then hr. Cyril E. Paquin has been in charge of
the state project. The map and bureau title pages were pre-
pared by Mr. Paul O‘Bryne, a member of the San Francisco Staff.
This Inventory of the records of the Department of Commerce in
A California was prepared in the San Francisco office of the
"“ -, Survey and was edited before final typing by Mr. Arthur R.
,’ Kboker of the Washington office.

Administration Bldg., Kern County Airport

This agency was established in Bakersfield on January 15, 1933.
Its chief function is to safeguard life and property on the heavily
traveled air lane between San Francisco and Los Angeles. It aids
in the operation and maintenance of intermediate landing fields
and beacon lights, furnishes constant radio information to pilots
regarding weather and winds, and transmits reports from pilots to
the Weather Bureau with which it cooperates. It also supplies
directional aid in blind weather, and informs of conditions to be
met in blind landings. A daily traffic log is kept of planes on
the lane, noting their airway observations, and discrepancies in
schedules. A monitor range~chart sets forth the plane's location
when picking up the agency's signals. Monthly reports are sent to
Washington through the Weather Bureau.

Salt Lake, and Texas airways, and supervises intermediate landing
fields, beacon lights, and radio directionals. In cooperation
, with the Weather Bureau, the agency advises pilots of weather and
winds, and transmits weather observations of pilots to the Weather
Bureau. Flight checks are compiled on all planes from time of en—
tering this lane until leaving. These checks are records of weath—
. ~ er, ceiling, off—schedule reports with reasons for delay, and gen—
, eral information relative to the flight. All reports are sent to

Administration Bldg., Los Angeles Municipal Airport
Inglewood, California

This agency was established in 1927. It was originally quaré
tered in the Chamber of Commerce Building, 123 South Hill Street;
moved to the Bendix Building, maple and Tuelfth Streets in February
1950; then to the present location in may 1955.

Its major function is to promote and develop air traffic with
public safety constantly in View. In furtherance of this policy,
pilots and mechanics are examined, planes and instruments are
tested, and factual data is compiled on airways, beacons, and
landing fields. Also all new models of air—craft are tested by
the engineers as are old models in which a change in construction
has been made.

All air—craft arriving or departing from airports in the vicin—
ity of Los Angeles is under the jurisdiction of this agency.

A list of useless papers has been submitted to Washington and
their destruction awaits authorization.

Treasury and Customs Bldg., 241 18th St.

This agency was established in San Francisco in July 1927, and
was known as the Aeronautic Branch of the Lighthouse Service until
July 1933. At that time it moved from the Customs Building in San
Francisco to the present location, and assumed the designation it
now bears.

It functions in safeguarding life and property on the much
traveled air lanes radiating from Oakland; aids air navigation in
the operation and maintenance of terndnals, intermediate landing
fields and beacon lights, and relays weather information to pilots
by radio. Flying observations are transmitted to the Weather Bureau
with which this agency cooperates, and data regarding directional
aid in blind weather and conditions to be encountered in blind land—
ings is supplied.

A running traffic log is kept of all planes on the various air
lanes with notations of their airway observations and discrepancies
in schedules. A radio range monitor places the location of the
