5 The Inventory of Federal Archives in the States is one of the
g - 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 50, 1957, and has been continued since that
} date as a unit of the historical Records Survey, also operating as a
_ { nation—wide project of the Work Projects Administration, and a group of .
j . state or local projects of that administration.
; o The plan for the organization of the Inventory is as follows:
Series I consists of reports on the administration of the Survey, ack—
‘ 3 - nowledgments, and general discussions of the location, condition, and
'7" content of federal archives in the state. Succeeding series contain
- 1 the detailed information secured by workers of the Survey, in inventory I
, form, a separate series number being assigned to each of the executive f
,‘ departments (except the Department of State) and other major units of E
. the Federal Government. Within each series No. 1 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 0f
related records, is presented in the following order: title, inclusive
,:. dates ("to date“ indicating an open file at the time the information Was
1 secured), general description of informational content, description of
the system of filing or indexing (if any), a statement of frequency and
1, purpose of use, form of the record itself (bound volumes, sheets in
1‘ folders, etc.), footage, description of the containers, physical condi— ,
. tion of the records (not stated if satisfactory), location by room |
- number or other identifying information, and finally, the number of the i
.' Form 588A on which this information was originally recorded by a Survey 3
- _ worker and from which it was abstracted for the Inventory. This form is j
g . on file in the National Archives. When it contains additional informa~ j
2,) tion on addenda sheets which have not been included in the mimeographed i
7 . ~ abstract, indication of this is given by use of the reference "See
5 , - addenda." .
f 5 I. The work of the Survey in Western Pennsylvania was under the direc—
§ ‘ . tion of fir. Louis W. H. Johnson, Regional Director from February 11,
§' ' 1956 until October 4, 1957. Since that time and until March 50, 1959
_; ' hr. John T. McMahon, Project Unit Supervisor directed the Survey. The
A Survey in Eastern Pennsylvania Was directed by Mr. Richard R. Heindel,
,5 Regional Director, from February 26 until August 1956 and from August
' .f . ' until December 51, 1956 by Mr. John L. Corry. After Dr. Gerry‘s resig—
5;". ' nation the project Was reorganized with Dr. Richard B. Morris of New
§£1.7 York as regional director and James L. Whitehead as Assistant Regional
, ; . . Director. In October 1957 Mr. James L. Whitehead was appointed Project
1 " Superintendent for the state and acted in that capacity until September
V 19, 1958 when he resigned and Was succeeded by Miss Williametta Wallace.
.I . This Inventory of the records of the Department of Agriculture in
‘3 I '- , Pennsylvania was prepared in the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh Offices Of
' I ' - the Survey and was edited before final typing by Mr. L. J. Darter Jr. of
i; f" , the Washington office.

Laboratory Building, R.D. 2 Kane, Pa.
1 The hane Experimental Forest within the Allegheny National
} Forest was established in 1951. The Kane Experimental Forest comprises
; 1756.8 acres of government land situated in the Allegheny National Forest
1 in Jones Township, Elk County, Pennsylvania; the tract lies for the most
i part on a high plateau dissected by various streams. "The object in es-
‘ tabliShing the Kane Experimental Forest is to provide a center of field
i work for the Experiment Station in the birch, beach, maple and hemlock
1 type of trees. Here are carried on investigations of methods of stand
J improVements, such as cleanings and thinnings, of methods of cutting to
4 . obtain natural regeneration, of rehabilitation of areas wrecked by cut— j
: ting and fire, and the more silvical and ecological problems involved in j
g the management of the type. t is hoped that the tract will also prove l
1 suitable for the investigation of the effect of forests on stream flow,
i particularly because regulation of stream flow was the object for which
i the Allegheny National Forest was originally established."
'. The agency was located in the Laboratory Building, R.D. No.2,
; Kane, Pa. on the seven mile road from Kane to Wilcox; the agency has
J been in this location since its establishment.
{ None of the redords have been lost or destroyed although most
9 v of the experimental data has been transferred from the hane Branch Field
Station to the Philadelphia office of the allegheny Forest Experimental
Station. No useless papers and destroyed without official authorization
from the Allegheny Forest Experimental Station. Instructions, regula—
. tions and orders from the office of Experiment Stations as well as from
. the Forest Service, Eastern Region No.7, Regional Office, determine the
disposition of records to Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. headquarters.
