The Association acknowledges also the receipt of the Inventory
of the Federal Archives in the States, Series IV, The Department
of War, from The Historical Records Survey, San Antonio, Texas.
This particular set, No. 42, deals with Texas and is divided into
twelve parts with a total of 1,160 pages typescript. The table of
contents, fifteen pages long, which for convenience accompanies
each of the twelve parts, reveals that archival material was studied
in about fifty localities in Texas in army recruiting stations, forts,
training camps, flying fields, army engineers' offices, reserve officers
training corps, hospitals, and civilian conservation corps.
