|Arrangement:||Arranged by report number.
|Numbering Note:||The reports were numbered from 1 through 8518 as they were produced by the creating office or collected from other organizations. If reports were updated, replaced with completely new editions, or became a periodic series, later reports would be assigned the same number with a sequential extension (e.g., 8518.2 which would be the second revision of 8518).|
|General Note(s):||Many of these reports circulated widely within the department where they were usually referred to as "R&A" reports and later as "OIR" reports. These office codes were often used as prefixes to the report numbers.
Many reports were declassified and released only after the files were microfilmed.
