PREFACE
A The_Inyentgry_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-wideproject of the Works Progress Administration from
' January 1, 1956 to June 50, 1957, and has been continued in Louisiana
since that date as a state project of that Administration and of the
Work Projects Administration with Louisiana State University as its
local sponsor.
The plan for the organization of the Inventory is as follows=
Series I consists of reports on the administration of the Survey, ac-
knowledgments, 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 intro-
duction 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. 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, descrip-
tion of the system of filing or indexing (if any), a statement of fre-
quency 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), loca-
tion by room.number or other identifying information, and finally, the
number of the Form 58SA on which this information was originally re-
corded by a Survey worker and from which it was abstracted for the In-
ventory. This form is on file in The National Archives. When it con-
` tains 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 Mississippi the work of the Survey was under the direction of
b Mr. Stanley C. Arthur, regional director for Mississippi, Arkansas,
Louisiana, and Tennessee, with Mr. George E. Schilling as state super-
visor, until June 50, 1957. From that time until April 1959, Mr.
Schilling was in charge of the state project. This Inventory of the
records of the Works Progress Administration in Mississippi was pre-
pared in the New Orleans office of the Survey under the direction of
Mrs. Norris Fazekas, editor-in-chief and assistant state supervisor.
