REPORT OF THE NATIONAL DIRECTOR OF THE SURVEY OF FEDERAL ARCHIVES TO THE WORKS PROGRESS ADMINISTRATION FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDING JUNE 30, 1937
The Survey of Federal Archives outside the District of Columbia began operation as WPA Sponsored Federal Project No. 4, with The National Archives as cooperating sponsor, on January 1, 1936. Originally authorized to operate for 6 months, it gathered during this period information regarding the location, conditions of storage, and general content of some two million linear feet of records of the Federal Government in the 48 States of the Union. This large volume, however, constituted only about 40 percent of the total of such records. Accordingly, in order that the information desired by The National Archives might be obtained for as large a proportion of the total as circumstances would permit, provision was made to continue the Survey until June 30, 1937. To finance it, a total of $2,068,757 was made available for the fiscal year 1937 by a series of Presidential Letters, in addition to certain sums from the original authorization of $1,176,000 that had not been expended in the preceding fiscal year. Actual payments during the year amounted to $2,152,115.
ADMINISTRATIVE ORGANIZATION AND PERSONNEL
During the fiscal year 1937 the Survey's general plan of organization remained substantially the same as when it was originally established. Centralized planning for and direction of the Nation-wide project was continued by means of a coordinating project, or headquarters staff, with an average employment of 29, which had its offices in the National Archives Building in Washington. Dr. Philip M. Hamer continued as National Director of the Survey. On August 16, 1936, however, he was appointed Chief of the Division of the Library of The National Archives, and from that date he divided his time between the duties of the two positions. Dr. Theodore R. Schellenberg resigned at the end of the fiscal year 1936 as Associate National Director to resume his work as deputy examiner in the Division of Accessions of The National Archives, and the position was not subsequently filled. On January 16, Dr. G. Philip Bauer, who had been on the Survey staff since the preceding April as research assistant, was appointed Assistant National Director and was given major responsibility for the editorial work of the Washington office until his resignation on April 19 to become research assistant in the Division of Research of The National Archives. Research assistants on the staff of the Survey were appointed during the year as follows: On August 1, Mr. Lewis J. Darter, Jr., and Mr. David K. McCarrell, candidates for Ph. D. degrees at the University of Pennsylvania and Duke University, respectively; on October 8, Mr.
