The Inventory of Federal Archives in the States is one of the pro—
ducts of the work 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. The project closed in Nevada on
the latter date and was reopened as a State project in September 1937.
In August 1939 it became a unit of the Historical Records Survey of
the Works Progress Administration and its successor the Work Projects

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 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 organization and records of the
governmental 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. 3, that for Arkansas No. u, etc.

For each local office information regarding each series, or unit
of related records, is presented in the following order: title, in—
clusive dates ("to date" indicating an open file at the time the in~
formation was secured), general description of the indexing (if any),
a statement of frequency and purp0se of use, form of the record it—
self (bound volumes, sheets in folders, etc., linear footage, de-
scription of the containers, physical condition of the records (not
stated if satisfactory). locatiOn by room number or other identifyh
ing information, and finally, the number of the Form 583A 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 centains substantial information on
addenda sheets which has not been included in the mimeographed ab- '
stract, indication of this is given by use of the reference "See

In Nevada the work of the Survey was under the direction of Dr.
Charles L. Stewart, regional director of Nevada and California, with
Mr. Francis H. Leavitt as state supervisor from its inception in
April 1936 until the termination of the Federal project on June 30,
1937. When the project was reopened in September 1937 it was supers~r
vised by Dr. Stewart, then Assistant Professor of History at the
University of Nevada, who acted as voluntary consultant. Upon Dr.
Stewart's resignation in September 1938, the voluntary supervisiOn
of the project was assumed by Professor Jeanne E. Wier, Head of the
Department of History at the University of Nevada. This Inventory
of the records of the Department of Labor in Nevada was prepared in
1938 under the supervision of Dr. Stewart, with Miss Arlie Rouanzoin
as editor, and was edited before final typing by Mrs. Harriet S.
Woods of the washington office.

"The national aid and supervision of the laboring interests of
the country were first proposed in Congress about the year 1867 and
1 many bills to this end were introduced and referred to committee
1 between that time and the passage of the act of June 27, 1884 (23
I Stat., 60). Under this act the Bureau of Labor was organized in
January 1885, as a part of the Department of the Interior, and the
' CommiSSioner of Labor was made its chief officer. Three years
.1 later, by act of Congress approved June 13, 1888 (25 Stat., 182),
1 the Bureau of Labor and its duties were transferred to the Depart-
5 ment of Labor, with independent functions, the title of its chief
j officer remaining unchanged. This, however, was for administrative
i purposes, and did not constitute an executive department.
1 By act of Congress of February 1”, 1903, "An act to establish
l the Department of Commerce and Labor,” the Department of Labor and
5 all that pertained thereto was placed under the jurisdiction and
i made a part of the Department of Commerce and Labor from and after
July 1, 1903, on which date the name Bureau of Labor was adopted by
1 order of the Secretary.“ 1/
, "By the act approved March H, 1913, creating a Department of
E Labor, the Bureau of Labor was transferred from the Department of
i COmmerce and Labor to the newly created executive department, and
1 under its jurisdiction were placed the Commissioner General of
1 Immigration, the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization, g/, the
: Immigration Service, the Bureau of Labor, and the Children‘s
i Bureau.” 3/
t "The organic act creating the Department of Labor reads in its
; first section that the purpose of the Department of Labor shall be
i to foster, promote, and develop the welfare of the wage earners of
j the United States, to improve their working conditions, and to

power is conferred upon Congress "To establish an uniform rule for
‘ On January 29, 1795 a law with the title "An act to establish an
[ uniform rule of naturalization and to repeal the act heretofore passed
upon that subject" was passed . . . . o This law was repealed in
1798, but its general features were reenacted in the law of April 19,
‘ 1802, and is, with a few amendments, the law as it stands at the
7 present time.
R "Prior to the act of March 3, 1891 (26 Stats., 108”), the various
{ laws relating to aliens, including those in regard to the importation
_ of contract laborers, were administered by State officials designated
3 by the governors of the respective States, under the direction and
1 control of the Secretary of the Treasury, and the expense incurred
i in such administration was defrayed from the permanent appropriation
* provided for by the Act approved August 3, 1882 (H7 Cong., Sess. I,
L 376), and known as the 'Immigrant Fund.z . . . . . Section 7 of the
I act of March 3, 1891 established the office of Superintendent of
: Immigration, placing this office under the direction of the Secretary
3 of the Treasury. The same act provides that the duties theretofore
1 discharged by State commissions, boards, or officers, should be per—
, formed and exercised . . . by the inspection officers of the United
3 States. Thus for the first time the administration of the immigra—
tion laws came into the hands of Federal officials exclusively . . .
. . The act of February in, 1903, establishing the Department of
I Commerce and Labor, transferred the Bureau of Immigration and its
. official force . . . to the Department of Commerce and Labor, and
I authority . . . in relation to the immigration of aliens . . . . .
i from the Secretary of the Treasury to the Secretary of Commerce and
E Labor from and after July 1, 1903." l/
1 "Prior to the act of June 29, 1906’ (Public, No. 388) there was
) no concentrated supervision of naturalization proceedings nor any
i centralized record of naturalization . . . . . The Bureau of Naturali—
( zation originated in an extension of the authority of the former
! Bureau of Immigratien, which by the act of June 29, 1906 was named
i the ‘Burcau of Immigration and Naturalization,‘ and given charge . .
t . . . of all matters cencerning the naturalization of aliens. Section
‘ 3 of this act conferred exclusive jurisdiction to naturalizo aliens
5 upon the following specific courts: The United States Circuit courts
3 and district courts or Territorial courts, and State courts having a
1 seal, a clerk, and jurisdiction in action at law or equity, or law
and equity in which the amount of controversy is unlimited." 2/

leveling/norm SERVICE

"The United States Employment Service had its inception in the
creation, in February 1907, of the Division of Information in the
Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization, a unit of the then Depart~
ment of COmmerce and Labor . . . . . the function of the Division
of Information being to (1) direct the flow of immigrant labor to
Job openings, and (2) the collection of information that would be of
value in this distribution process . . . . a Little actual placement
or distribution was done by the Division. Legislative authority to
include among its duties advancement of opportunity of workers "for
profitable employment" was contained in the first section of the
organic act establishing the Department of Labor. A nation~wide place—
ment agency for citizens resulted. The country was divided into
eighteen administrative zones, each zone in charge of a supervisor
delegated from the personnel of the immigration offices within the
zone. The entire distribution service was thus coordinated with the
immigration field service. Thus, during the years from 1914 to 1916
the character of the EmplOyment Service changed from that of directing
aliens to inland jobs to that of a placement agency for the un—
employed." 1/

"In the urgent deficiency act approved October 6, 1917, Congress
recognized the necessity for an Employment Service and appropriated
funds for its maintenance. These funds were supplemented by an allot—
ment from the PrOSident‘s appropriation for national security and
defense. Departmental orders of October 13 and December 15, 1917,
contained instructions for the creation of a distinct Employment
Service separate from the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Immigration.” g/

"As reorganized in January 1918 the Employment Service was made a
separate bureau of the Department of Labor, and the Division of Infor—
mation was made a part of the enlarged Employment Service. Within a
year after the peak of maximum activity in 1918, the entire chain of
Federal employment offices was abandoned or turned over to the States
and municipalities for continuation. FrOm 1919 to 1931 the United
States Employment Service continued to function only as a clearing
house for information, standards, and statistics, and to a limited
extent, for interstate clearance on placements.” 3/

"The wagneereyser Act, effective June 6, 1933, abolished the then
existing United States Employment Service and created a new service

as a separate bureau in the Department of Labor. Its major function
was to promote and develop a national system of employment offices by
assisting in establishing and maintaining them in the States. The
function of the Federal office under this arrangement is to develop
and maintain minimum standards of Operation, promote uniformity in
procedure and record keeping, maintain interstate clearance of labor,
and thus integrate the local and state services into a Nation—wide
employment system." if

"Under provisions of the PresidentZs Reorganization plan no. 1,
made effective July 1, 1939, by Public Resolution 20, 76th Congress,
the United States Employment Service in the Department of Labor was
abolished and the functions and personnel transferred to the Federal
Security Agency to be consolidated with the unemployment compensation
functions of the Social Security Board to be administered in the
Social Security Board under the direction and supervision of the
Federal Security Administrator." g/

By this consolidation the two units, the United States Employment
Service and the Bureau of Unemployment Compensation, became the
Bureau of Employment Security. 3/ The Employment Service is listed
here, however, as it existed at the time the plan for the Survey of
Federal Archives in the States was made.
