The Inventorv 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 Administration from January 1, 1936 to
June 30, 1937, and has been continued in Utah since that date as a state
project of that Administration and of the Work Projects 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 detailed information
secured by workers of the Survey, in inventory form, a separate series nnm~
her being assigned to each of the executive departments (except the Depart—
ment 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 alpha—
betical order. Thus, in each series, the inventory for Alabama is No. 2,
that for Arizona No. 3, that for Arkansas No. H, 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 record 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 588A on which this in—
formation was originally recorded by a Survey worker and from which it was
abstracted for the Inventory. This form is on file in The National Ar—
chives. 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 Utah the work of the Survey has been under the direction of Mr. John
E. Ireland, since its inception. This Inventory of the records of the De—
partment of Commerce in Utah was prepared in the Salt Lake City office of
the Survey and was edited before final typing by Miss Elizabeth Edwards of
the Washington office.

The inventory of records below reflects, of course, the organization of
the Bureau of Air Commerce as it existed at the time the Survey of Federal
Archives was made. The Civil Aeronautics Act, approved June 23, 1938, es—
tablished the Civil Aeronautics Authority and vested in the Authority the
powers and duties relating to the promotion and development of civil aero~
nautics which were previously vested in the Secretary of Commerce. Upon
the transfer of these functions to the Civil AeronautiCS Authority under
date of August 22, 1938, the Bureau of Air Commerce was abolished.
