Scope and Content Note

This series reveals the activities of the city and county salvage committees and their coordination of local salvage efforts, particularly those concerning periodic waste paper and tin collection drives.

Correspondence includes: letters from the committee describing their programs and requesting assistance and promotional materials; supportive and congratulatory letters from the Salvage Division to committee chairmen; letters between the Salvage Division and cooperating agencies, businesses, and individuals concerning the resolution of problems; and routine letters regarding the shipment of promotional materials and awards to children for outstanding service.

Field representatives' reports about the activities of the local committees are included if the reports raised issues that required follow-up correspondence. Newspaper clippings detail local salvage issues and announce salvage drives. Some very brief reports from committee chairmen giving tin salvage figures are included.
