PREFACE
The Inventory 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 nationewide project of the Works Progress Administration from January
1, 1936 to June 30, 1937, and has been continued in Louisiana since
that date as a state project nf 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: Se-
ries I consists of reports on the administration of the Survey, acknow-
ledgments, and general discussions of the location, condition, and con-
tent of federal archives in the states. Succeeding series contain the ,
detailed information secured by workers if 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. 3,
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, 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 58SA on which this information was ~riginally recorded by a Survey
worker and from which it was abstracted for the Inventory. This form
is on filo in The National Archives. When it contains substantial in—
formation on addenda sheets which has not been included in the mimeo~ —
graphed abstract, indication of this is given by use of the reference
"See addenda."
In Louisiana the work of the Survey has been under the direction of
Mr. Stanley C. Arthur since its inception. This Inventory of tho records
of the Works Progress Administration in Louisiana was prepared in the
New Orleans office of the Survey under the direction of Mrs. Norris B.
Fazekas, editor-in-chief and assistant state supervisor.

OFFICE OF DISTRICT DIRECTOR (DISTRICT 8)
Old Post Office Building
This district office was established August 15, 1955, although it
had been in existence under different titles and organizations since
1952. It has maintained quarters in its present location since its in~
ception. The district director is resp»nsib1e for the administration
of all activities in his district, with the exception of state projects,
which are administered by the state office, and federal projects, which
are administered by representatives from the Washington office.
The district organization parallels that of the state office with »
a supervisor in charge of each division, and he is directly responsible
to the district director for the efficient operation of his division;
Some of the records of the office are dated prior to the establish~ —
ment date. These records originated with one of the earlier agencies
whose duties were taken over by this office. Early records not in use
by the office were shipped to New Orleans for storage. All records of V
the present office are complete. Statistical reports are sent to the ·
area office, Dallas, Texas.
