The Inventory of Federal Archives in the States is one of the prod-
ucts of the work of the Survey of Federal Archives, which operated as
a nation-wide project of the Works Progress Administration from January
1, 1956 to June 50, 1957, and has been continued since that date in
Rhode Island 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, acknowledg—
ments, and general discussions of the location, condition, and content
of federal archives in the states. Succeeding series contain the de-
tailed information secured by workers of the Survey, in inventory fond,
a separate series number being assigned to each of the executive de-
partments (except the Department of State) and other major units of
the Federal Government. Within each series No. 1 is a general intro—
duction to the field organization and records of the governmental agen-
cy 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 No. 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), 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, phy-
sical condition of the records (not stated if satisfactory), location
by room number or other identifying infonnation, and finally, the num-
ber of the Form 588A 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. When it contains sub-
stantial 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 Rhode Island the work of the Survey was under the direction of
Mr. Norman L. Kilpatrick, with Mr. R. A. McLeod as his assistant, from
its inception until June 6, 1957. Since that date Mr. McLeod has been
in charge of the project. This Inventory of the records of the Veter—
ans' Administration in Rhode Island was prepared in the Providence of—
fice of the Survey and was edited before final typing by Miss Elizabeth
Edwards of the washington office.
