Series Part I, III: OPA Reports and Printed Material, 1940-1947

Call Number: MS 628, Series Part I, III

Scope and Contents

Series III is composed of reports and other types of printed material relating to OPA. Though some of this material dates from the time Bowles headed OPA, for the most part the reports and printed material in this series were produced after Bowles' resignation and hence technically after the termination date for Part I of the Bowles Papers. The Series includes a nearly complete set of the Historical Reports on War Administration: Office of Price Administration. (This material duplicates items already in the collections of the Public Documents Room, Sterling Memorial Library.)
