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 50, 1937, and has been continued in Maine 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 states. 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 De-
partment 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 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. 4, 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 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 Maine the Work of the Survey was under the direction of Judge Edward
K. Gould, Regional Director for Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont, with
Ella C. Newman as his assistant from its inception until June 30, 1957.
Since that time the Maine Project has been under the supervision of Ella C.
Newman. This Inventory of the records of the Veterans’ Administration in
Maine was prepared in the Rockland office of the Survey and was edited be-
fore final typing by Miss Elizabeth Edwards of the washington office.

The first Home for Disabled Veterans in the United States was established
in Togus in 1866. It was then called the National Asylum but was later '
known as the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers. Prior to 1866
a Health Cure Sanitarium was maintained at Togus by private citizens. A few
of its records dating from 1859 however have been found. On July 21, 1930
by Executive Order of the President, the Veterans Administration was estab—
lished as an independent establishment. In 1953 the name was changed to
Veterans' Administration Facility. It new functions as a Hospital,Domicili-
ary, and as a Regional Office for the Veterans' Administration in Maine.

The Facility is located at Togus within the city limits of Augusta.
Practically all of the older wooden buildings have been demolished and re-
placed by brick ones to which many of the records have been transferred
since the Survey was made. Useless papers are destroyed upon authorization
from Washington.
