ADMINISTRATIVE HISTORIES OF WORLD WAR II CIVILIAN AGENCIES OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
New Haven, Conn.: Research Publications, 1976
These histories detail the United States' first comprehensive mobilization for war. Civilian agencies during World War II managed war production, price stabilization, transportation and shipping, manpower, federal housing, rationing, and the allocation of raw materials. Agencies were developed to regulate alien property, war assets, censorship, civilian defense, scientific research, and public health. The 423 histories were produced by the Second World War History Program of the Bureau of the Budget, which by March 1942 had evolved into the Committee on Records of War Administration. Histories are arranged by agency in alphabetical order.
‘Administrative Histories of World War II Civilian Agencies of the Federal Government provides access by agency, author, title of report, and subject, with a full bibliographic citation for each report.
