Bot Excerpt from Alphabetical List of Federal World War Agencies, 1914-21 The following list of agencies, arranged in alphabetical order regardless of size or importance, is intended to be used with the recently issued List of Federal World'war Agencies, lglgr20, 'which showed the units in their hierarchical relationship. It is hoped that it may also have independent value. Both lists have been pre pared primarily for use as working tools in connection with the comp pilation of a Handbook of federal'worldar Agencies, l914 2l, which is now under way. This Handbook will contain brief descriptive statements on the organization, functions, and records of each of the agencies appearing in this list. $ince several additional months 'will be required to complete the Handbook, it was felt that the issuance of this list might meanwhile serve a useful purpose. An effort has been.made to increase its value to officials concerned 'with the records of the war of 1914-18 by placing an asterisk before names of those agencies whose records, in whole or in part, are known to be in The National Archives at the present time. It should be kept in mind, however, that additional records of this period are being transferred almost daily and also that The National Archives can often furnish information as to the present location of records not in its custody. Records of all the major'emergency agencies of the war of are now in The National Archives, with the single exception of those of the war Trade Board. An asterisk could be placed before the names of such agencies without hesitation. It has often been difficult, however, to determine the situation with respect to the files of lesser units within an agency, especially where the records were consolidated into central files or where large accessions, supposedly representing the remaining records of a major agency, have not been thoroughly ana lyzed. In many instances the names of lesser units within such agencies have been marked with an asterisk because there is a reasonable cer tainty that the records are in the building. It should.be observed also that where the actual records of an agency are missing, informa tion concerning the activities of that agency can almost certainly be found in the records of superior units in the hierarchy or among the informational files of other agencies.
