PREFACE
The Inventory 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, 1956 to June 5Q
1957, and has been continued in Kentucky since that date 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, acknowledgments,
and general discussions of the location, condition, and content of federal
archives in the state. Succeeding series contain the detailed information
secured by workers of the Survey, in inventory form, a separate series num-
ber 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. 1 is a general introduction to the field organization and
records of the governmental agency concerned; the succeeding numbers con-
tain 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. M, 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 5BSA on which this informa-
tion was originally recorded by a Survey worker and from which it was ab-
stracted 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 Kentucky the work of the Survey was undertaken by Judge Samuel C.
c Williams, with Mr. John Wilson Townsend as his assistant, from its inception
{K until October 1956. Since that time Mr. Townsend has been in charge of the
;; project. This inventory of the records of the Department of Justice in Ken-
a tucky was prepared in the Louisville office of the Survey and was edited be-
fore final typing by Mr. A. R. Kooker of the Washington office.
