Historical NoteReturn to Top

The federal government initiated the Historical Records Survey (H.R.S.) in 1935 to relieve high levels of white-collar unemployment. Established as one of five programs under the Works Progress Administration (W.P.A., renamed Work Projects Administration in 1939), the H.R.S. employed clerical workers and professionals to inventory public and private archives across the nation. The H.R.S. was federally funded and directed until August 1939, when federal law required states to assume complete administrative control and greater financial responsibility for the project. With the beginning of World War II, however, W.P.A. projects unrelated to the war effort were discontinued, and by mid 1942 the H.R.S. project was at a standstill. All W.P.A. projects ended in February 1943, and most H.R.S. records were deposited in public repositories.

The H.R.S.' primary goal was to survey and inventory public state, county, city, and town archives across the United States, as well as private collections and archives. HRS projects were conducted on both the national and state level. The first national project inventoried county records, but surveys of church records, imprints, and manuscripts soon followed. State projects included such diverse topics as Transcriptions of Cemetery Inscriptions (New Hampshire), an Inventory to the Eugenics Records Survey (Vermont), an Index to Indian Depredations (Georgia), the Erie Canal Records Survey (Pennsylvania), and Letters of Famous Oregon Pioneers (Oregon).

The H.R.S.' secondary goal was to publish record inventories to make historical records and documents more accessible to amateur and professional researchers. Attainment of this goal fluctuated greatly between states and individual surveys, and H.R.S. officials estimated that only twenty percent of completed inventories were published. A third goal was archival reorganization and record preservation. In the process of surveying collections, workers often found records neglected, unorganized, stored under bad conditions, or, in the case of one Iowa county courthouse, used for kindling. Workers' efforts saved many collections from disposal or irreversible damage.

State projects deposited their records in various institutions when the H.R.S. officially ended in 1943 in hope that the survey would continue after the war. The Oregon H.R.S. deposited its records with the University of Oregon and the Oregon State Library at Salem. Other collections received less favorable treatment, however. Archivist Leonard Rapport found the Massachusetts H.R.S. records "in 132 bundles, wrapped like laundry but feeling like short-weight sacks of Portland cement" in the "surrealist circus-tent setting" of a Forbes Library attic. He also reported that some records were misplaced or discarded for lack of space. The Maine H.R.S. records, for example, were dumped into Casco Bay soon after the project ended as no repository was willing to accept them. In the 1970s Rapport and the Society of American Archivists brought attention to H.R.S. work by locating the surviving unpublished records and publishing The Historical Records Survey: A Guide to the Unpublished Inventories, Indexes, and Transcripts (Chicago, 1980).

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Oregon Historical Records Survey collection is arranged according to its original order, and most of the documents are in excellent condition. It is valuable because it contains detailed documentation of Oregon history and records, and because it provides insight into H.R.S. administrative and editorial processes. It is arranged by series, and is composed primarily of historical essays, standardized forms, transcriptions of documents, interviews, research notes, and W.P.A. instructions and correspondence. Some photographs, floor plans, and pamphlets are also included. The series are: County Records Inventory Survey, Individual Manuscripts Survey, Historic Buildings Survey, Maps and Photographs Survey, State Boards of Commission, Out of State Files, County Commissioners' Journals, Education Survey, Oregon Church History Survey, American Imprints Survey, Manuscripts Survey, Radio Scripts, Letters of Famous Oregon Pioneers, WPA Historical Records Survey Administrative Documents, Oregon State Survey, Miscellaneous Documents, Oregon Imprints, and Photographs. Note that the last arrangement of records ("Oversize Materials", Boxes 87-88) is not a separate series but a flat box and a flat file drawer created during rehousing to protect and preserve large documents.

The Oregon H.R.S. was the most comprehensive documentary project of Oregon history and related records of its time. The territorial and pioneer periods of the mid- to late nineteenth century receive the greatest attention, with an emphasis on the growth of state government and infrastructure, business and agriculture, transportation, education, biography, and relations between social groups. Native Americans figure prominently in this collection. Historical essays introduce some of this information, but most information is supplied by standardized forms. The usefulness of the forms varies significantly, as some provide only a document’s general description, location (circa 1942), and physical condition, while others include a full transcription of the document.

This collection also reveals a great deal about H.R.S. administrative and editorial processes, as most series contain project-specific administrative correspondence and instructions. H.R.S. Director Luther Evans implemented strict procedural guidelines and assembly line techniques to facilitate uniform project results across the nation. To this end H.R.S. workers received detailed instruction manuals and standardized forms such as the Individual Record Form and the Church History Form. Editors subjected H.R.S. work to rigorous editorial standards, which included checking and double-checking facts, requesting more information, and correcting and reorganizing prose. Questions in the margins of Oregon H.R.S. forms and essay drafts reflect these procedures. In spite of federal attempts at uniformity, however, the quality, precision, and extent of information provided by essays and standardized forms varied from worker to worker.

Researchers may compare the (circa) 1940s locations of county records referred to in this collection (in standardized forms or transcriptions) with their current depositories by consulting the Oregon County Records Inventories (Oregon State Archives: Oregon Historical Records Project, 1995). These four volumes are located in the reference section of the University of Oregon's Special Collections department. Among the county records series that appear in the Oregon H.R.S. collection that can be cross-referenced with the 1995 inventories are, among others, birth, death, marriage, and divorce records, County Commissioners' Journals, and Married Women's Property Registers.

It is likely that some Oregon Federal Writers Project (another W.P.A. program) records were combined with the H.R.S. records in our collection. The Radio Scripts Series provides the clearest example of this likelihood. Researchers interested in H.R.S. records for counties not listed here should contact the Oregon State Library (Salem), with whom the Oregon H.R.S. records collection was divided in late 1942.

Other Descriptive InformationReturn to Top

The University of Oregon’s Knight Library and Special Collections contain a number of resources for those desiring more information about the history of the H.R.S. Of particular interest are addresses made by H.R.S. directors Luther Evans and Sargent B. Child during H.R.S. operation. Evans' 1938 statement to a Senate subcommittee, The Historical Records Survey: A Statement on its Program and Accomplishments Presented to the Sub-committee of the Senate Committee on Education and Labor (Washington, D.C., 1938, Knight Library: CD3020.H53), clearly describes H.R.S. goals and achievements. His 1939 address to the 48th congress of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Preservation of the Nation's Records (New York, 1939, Knight Library: E11. E82), also provides a detailed look at H.R.S. philosophy, procedures, and programs. Subsequent director Sargent B. Child's address to a group of Cincinnati organizations, Status and Plans for Completion of the Inventories of the Historical Records Survey (Washington, D.C., 1940, Knight Library: CD3020.H6C45), focuses more on H.R.S. publications. It also provides insight into changes wrought by the transfer of H.R.S. administration from the federal to the state level.

Another useful contemporary publication is Robert Wilson Kidder's essay "The Historical Records Survey: Activities and Publications" in Library Quarterly (13(2), 1943, Knight Library: Z671.L713). It briefly introduces H.R.S. history, then concisely describes H.R.S. projects and provides corresponding examples of inventory entries. This essay reveals how some members of the public interpreted H.R.S. work and progress circa 1941, and makes interesting projections about the usefulness of its results for future researchers and government officials.

Later assessments of the H.R.S. document archivists' rediscovery of valuable H.R.S. material and contrast nicely with the above contemporaneous accounts. The most useful may be Loretta Hefner's The WPA Historical Records Survey: A Guide to the Unpublished Inventories, Indexes, and Transcripts (Chicago, 1980, Special Collections Reference: Z1236.H437). This guide traces the life cycle of the H.R.S., touches on its postwar neglect, and focuses on its rediscovery and preservation efforts by archivists in the 1970s. It also contains an alphabetical state-by-state listing of H.R.S. record repositories. On a similar note, an entire issue of The American Archivist (37(2), 1974, Knight Library: CD3020.A45) was devoted to the H.R.S. Although most articles in this issue focus on specific state H.R.S. programs, Edward Papenfuse's "'A Modicum of Commitment': The Present and Future Importance of the Historical Records Survey" provides insight into the H.R.S.' effect on archival procedures and suggests how researchers can utilize the surviving H.R.S. forms.

For those interested in the general history of the W.P.A., the standard work remains William McDonald's Federal Relief Administration and the Arts (Columbus, Ohio, 1969, Knight Library: NX745.M3). This exhaustive, synthetic study first traces how provision of social welfare services and unemployment relief shifted from private agencies to the federal government, then discusses the growth of the W.P.A. and its specific programs. The section on the H.R.S. addresses the project's birth, growth, qualifications for employment, administrative changes and personalities, and descriptions of its purpose and different inventory projects.

County Records Inventory SurveyReturn to Top

The County Records Inventory Survey series (boxes 1-38) was the inaugural national H.R.S. project whose goal was publication of county records inventories. Due to World War II and the subsequent end of W.P.A. projects, however, only select inventories reached publication. Standardized forms that represent workers' fieldwork constitute the bulk of this series. Historical sketches also figure prominently, and were intended to be introductions for each county inventory. The box and folder listing below reveals the broad range of information covered by this series. The pioneer period (1840-1900) is especially well documented, and subjects include the history and organization of county government, care and accessibility of county records, the growth of county infrastructure, law, business and industry, education, religion, population statistics, and social relations. Extensive biographical information exists in interviews, transcriptions of journals, and newspaper clippings. This series contains a good deal of information about Native Americans and Chinese in Oregon.

A potential drawback to this series is its awkward organization. It is arranged alphabetically by county, and each county’s records are arranged by topic (see standardized Roman numeral key reproduced below). Furthermore, each county is also indexed by specific subjects (see Box 1, folders 2-38, for county-specific indexes). A person may find this series more approachable by being creative about subject descriptions. For instance, the researcher may be interested in relations between Native Americans and pioneers. One may begin by examining a specific county, or if numerous counties are of interest one could examine each county’s records according to the Roman numeral subject key. Roman numeral XII, “Indian Wars,” would be a logical starting point. (This title does not sufficiently reflect the corresponding folders’ contents, but has been maintained because of its historical precedence in the collection. It is usually described as "Indian Affairs" in the “Contents” section of the Box and Folder Listing below). One should also consider such categories as I ("General history"), and II ("Establishment of towns"), as well as III ("Social Statistics") and even VI ("Business and Industry"). Many pioneers' interviews also touch on the subject of Native Americans. If the researcher is interested in a specific topic related to Native America, however, he or she may find the county subject indexes useful.

Other Descriptive InformationReturn to Top

Oregon H.R.S. workers used the following key to organize general historical information and county records by topic gathered during the County Records Inventory Survey (C.R.I.S.). The upper left-hand corner of most of the standardized forms in the C.R.I.S. series reflects workers' use of this key. It is included here both to reflect the series' original organization and to provide researchers with general guidance.

Individual Manuscripts SurveyReturn to Top

The Individual Manuscripts Survey series (Boxes 39-41) inventoried manuscripts held by non-government public and private depositories such as libraries, historical societies, and private collections. Like the County Records Inventory Survey (C.R.I.S.), its primary goal was to make historical documents more accessible to researchers and the general public by publishing an inventory. It is arranged alphabetically by county and depository, and is comprised mostly of standardized forms that provide the name and location of manuscripts and their depositories. Most forms only briefly describe a manuscript, but workers partially excerpted or transcribed some documents. Letters, diaries, and account books possessed by private individuals figure the most prominently in this collection.

Although the series is probably outdated since it deals mostly with private individuals' collections circa 1940, it does provide a few interesting research leads. Its documentation of KOAC Radio Scripts (Box 41(13-20)) could be of interest to researchers, as could the "Guide to Depositories of Manuscript Collections in the United States: Oregon and Washington" (1940), of which there are multiple drafts in Box 39(2) and a final draft in Box 83(16). This series is also particularly revealing of H.R.S. editorial processes. In addition to the multiple drafts of "Guide to Depositories...", many of its standardized forms have editorial questionnaires attached that request HRS workers to recheck facts or provide more information.

County Commissioners' JournalsReturn to Top

The County Commissioners' Journals series (Boxes 54-75) may be one of the most exciting components of this collection. Arranged alphabetically by county, it consists of typed and handwritten transcriptions of county commissioners' journals from the territorial period through the late nineteenth century, and provides insight into the lives of Oregon pioneers and early county government. General topics include establishment of land boundaries, laws and judicial decisions, and the appointment of county officials. An incomplete subject index arranged alphabetically by county accompanies this series, and contains worksheets (Box 72) and index cards (Boxes 73-75). Indexed subjects include the history and organization of county government and officers, schools, buildings, and transportation.

Education SurveyReturn to Top

The Education Survey series (Boxes 76-77) is composed primarily of original and previously published historical sketches of primary and secondary schools. Arranged alphabetically by school name, it includes transcriptions of attendance records, course descriptions, faculty and administrative appointments, minutes of board meetings, and various school publications. This series contains a great deal of information about nineteenth century schools, and combined with other documents in this collection (such as those under the headings "Public schools" and "Private schools" in the C.R.I.S.) could be particularly fruitful for researchers interested in the history of Oregon education.

Oregon Church History SurveyReturn to Top

The Oregon Church History Survey series (Boxes 78-79) documents the history of Christian religion in Oregon. It is composed primarily of research notes, transcriptions of primary sources such as church records and secondary sources about church history, as well as a few historical sketches in draft form. Researchers interested in this topic should supplement these records with the C.R.I.S. series, as each county’s records include information regarding its places of worship.

American Imprints SurveyReturn to Top

The goal of the American Imprints Survey series (Box 80/1-8) was to trace the history of American printing and publishing by inventorying public and private collections of print material. The Oregon survey focused on material printed through 1900, and its records include such information as the imprint's title, author, publisher, place and date of publication, number of pages, size, and repository location. This series also includes a significant amount of instructive correspondence regarding the survey's execution. Although this series may be obsolete, it served as the foundation for Douglas McMurtrie's Oregon Imprints, 1847-1870 (Eugene: University of Oregon Books, 1950) and George N. Belknap's Oregon Imprints, 1845-1870, (Eugene: University of Oregon Books, 1968).

Manuscripts SurveyReturn to Top

The Manuscripts Survey series (Box 80/9-81) is one of the more interesting series in this collection because it contains finished products of the Oregon H.R.S. and another W.P.A. program, the Federal Writers' Project. It is composed of manuscripts in various stages of completion including research notes, manuscript drafts, and published mimeographs. Some manuscripts are original histories, while others are transcriptions of primary source documents relevant to the pioneer period of Oregon history.

Radio ScriptsReturn to Top

The Radio Scripts series (Box 82/1-3) contains scripts from three radio programs produced from 1939-1940 by the H.R.S. in conjunction with the W.P.A. writers', theatre, and music projects, and Portland-area media such as KBPS and the Oregonian. The scripts deal with topics in Oregon history, and focus on pioneers and the late nineteenth century. This series is also interesting because it reflects larger federal goals for W.P.A projects: the employment of artists and white-collar professionals, cooperation between W.P.A. projects, and the application of their labor to the production of cultural programs for the general public.

Letters of Famous Oregon PioneersReturn to Top

The Letters of Famous Oregon Pioneers series (Box 82/4-83/9) is composed of typed, transcribed letters that provide insight into Oregon pioneer life through the turn of the nineteenth century. Topics include territorial and state government, politics, business, social relations, and personal subject matter. The letters were written by and addressed to prominent men, and are arranged alphabetically by author. Letters addressed to Asahel Bush, editor and publisher of the mid-nineteenth century Democratic newspaper The Statesman, make up the majority of this series. Although it is unclear how the letters came to the attention of H.R.S. workers, the preface and bibliography of Jenette E. Roberts' work Asahel Bush: Pioneer Editor, Politician, and Banker (Eugene, 1939: Oregon Collection F881.B828) suggests they belonged to the private collection of Bush's son, A.N. Bush. These letters complement the biographical information and interviews contained in the C.R.I.S. series.
