Finding Aids

Prior to 1936, the only way to be absolutely sure that you have all the Executive orders and proclamations related to existing national emergencies would be to read the texts of every one from 1933 to 1936. The texts of these Executive orders and proclamations can be found either at the Office of the Federal Register or the Library of Congress.

After 1936, Table 5 in Title 3 of the Code of Federal Regulations
lists the statutes cited as authority for Presidential documents.
If the United States Code or Statutes at Large citation is known,
proclamations or Executive orders issued under the authority of
a particular law can be located. This would be a substantial
research project.

Several additional sources which could be used as starting places for adding to the partial list we have provided are:

(1) There were various publications done during the war years which list emergency statutes, proclamations; and Executive orders on limited subject areas. Some of these publications that might be helpful to you are mentioned in Government Publications and Their Use on pages 235 to 238 under the heading "War Legislation." (Attached).

(2) Table 4 of the Code of Federal Regulations Cummulative Supplement, Titles 1-3, Book 1, lists Executive orders issued pursuant to the First and Second War Powers Acts for the period December, 1941 to March, 1943. (Attached).

(3) The U.S. Government Manual.-1945, Second Edition, which was published by the Division of Public Inquiries, Government Information Service, Bureau of the Budget, lists the emergency war agencies and the authority for their establishment. In many cases they were set up by Executive orders. Our office has a copy of the 1945 Manual if your Committee should need one.

(4) The records for many of these emergency agencies during the depression and war years are kept in the Industrial and Social Branch, Civil Archives Division, National Archives and Records Service. Mr. Joseph Howerton would be able to answer your questions on these records. His telephone number is 962-1047 or 962-8041.
