Scope and Content Note

From May 1942 to August 1943 the Office of Civilian Mobilization's director sent a monthly report to the Lieutenant Governor who was in charge of administering defense programs as the State War Plans Coordinator. The reports describe: organization of the local war councils; developments in the local war councils; establishment of community service sections with the cooperation of the State Department of Social Welfare; volunteer office inspections; conferences; cooperative civilian protection efforts; and cooperative agreements with federal agencies. The monthly reports are often supplemented by field development reports from the Section for Citizen Unity (initially the Section for Citizen Morale) and the State Department of Social Welfare. The monthly report for February 1943 is missing.

This series also contains budget requests, reports of activities and contemplated future activities, and an annual report (1944) addressed to the Executive Secretary.
