PREFQQE
The Inventory of Federal Archives in the States is one of the
producbE_BY°%BE"WB}k"Bfm€H€`Sh}¥E§"EF'?EHEYET`KY$Hivcs, which operated
as a mation-wide prnject 0f the Works Progress Administration from
January 1, 1956 to June $0, T957, and has been continued since that
data in Mississippi 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 c0n~
tain the detailed information secured by workers 0f the Survey, in
inventory form, a separate series number boing assigned to each of the
executive departments (except the Department of State) and other major
units of the Federal Government. Within each series N0. 1 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 alphabetical order.
Thus, in each series, the inventory for Alabama is H0. 2, that for
Arizona N0. 5, that for Arkansas N0. Q, etc.
For each local office information regarding each series, or unit
of related rocords, is prwscntcd in the following order: title, in-
clusive dates ("t0 date" indicating an open file at the time the in-
formation was secured), general description of infornmtional content,
description of the system 0f filing 0r indexing (if any), a statement
of frequency and purpose 0f usc, form of the record itself (bound
volumes, sheets in folders, ctc.), linear footage, description of the
containers, physical condition of the records (not stated if satisfac-
tory), location by room number or other identifying information, and
finally, the number of the Form $9SA on which this information 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.
`Whan it contains substantial inforwmtion on addenda sheets which has
not been included in the mimcogyaphcd abstract, indication of this is
given by use of the reference "Sce add©nd&."
In Mississippi the work of the Survey was under the direction of
Mr. Stanley C. Arthur, regional director for Arkansas, Louisiana, and
Mississippi, with Mr. George E, Schilling as state supervisor, until
June $0, 1Q}?. Since that time Mr. Schilling has been in charge of the
state project. This Inventory of thm records of the Department of the
Treasury in Mississippi was prepared in the New Orleans office of the
Survey under the direction of lhs. Norris Fazckas, udit0r·in—chicf and
assistant state supervisor, and was edited before final typing by
Dr. Erik Achorn of the Washington office.

§ The act of February 2h, 180b, which created the District of Miss-
1 issippi, established the Pascagoula River as the boundary of that dis- i
pf trict and provided that New Orleans be the only port of entry. It was 1
1 not until 1852 that a separate district was set up to include the Gulf I
'g Coast territory between the Pearl and Pascagoula Rivers. A port of ,
lg entry, to be situated near the mouth of the Pearl River, was to be
1 selected by the President. This port was located at Pearlington.
1 Pearlington continued as headquarters of the Pearl River District until
,Q Congress, by an act of Juno 15, 181Q, named Shieldsborough, on the Bay
it of St. Louis, as the port of entry for the district and relegated 1
