The office of the United States Attorney for the Southern Dis—
trict of California was established in Los Angeles in 1950. By an
Act of Congress, July 27, 1866, the district was abolished and
merged with the dorthern District of California, with headquarters
in Stn Francisco. On August 5, 1896, Congress recreated the
Southern District, Yith headquarters in Los Angeles. By another
.Act of Congress on Key 29, 1900, the Southern District was divided

. into the Worthcrn and southern Divisions. In 1929, Congress created
three divisions within the district: the Northern Division, com-
prising Inyo, Mnriposa, Merced, Madern, Fresno, Kings, Kern and
Tulmre counties; the Central Division, comprising Los Angelcs, Sen
Bcrnardino, Riverside, San Luis Obispo, Orange, Santa Darbara and
Venture counties; and the Southern Division, comprising San Diego
and Imperial counties.

From September 28, 1850 to July 27, 1866 this agency occupied
offices in an unnamed building at the corner of Commercial and
Main St3.; from July 2, 1866 to August 4, 1866 it was not in ex—
istence; from August 5, 1886 to December 31, 1900 the offices
were in the U. S. Courthouse, Old Federal Building, corner of
North Broadway and First Street; from January 2, 1901 to Septem—
ber 23, 1910 in the Tajo Building at First and Broadway; and from
September 24, 1910 to date in its present quarters.

The primary function of this office is the handling of all civil
and criminal litigation involving the United States or its officers.
Another duty is the prosecution of persons charged with violations
of the various anti—tru t acts, the revenue acts, the Bankruptcy
Act, the National Bank Act, and other similar statutes. Legal ad—
