Scope and Content Note

This series consists of card indexes to Series B1416, Extradition Case Files. The cards are typed carbon copies of the extradition case control cards included in each case file. Each card typically includes case number; name; state and locality seeking extradition; crimes; location where fugitive is held in New York; supporting papers; date of request; date request received; date request granted or denied; status of warrant (returned, withdrawn, or extradition waived); names of agents to return fugitive; and other remarks, which may continue on verso of card. Cards for the years 1940-1954 are handwritten and include only name of fugitive, state making request, case number, and date and final disposition of case.

Case files are not available for those years and were reportedly destroyed. Indexes for 1955-1956; 1966-1973; 1974-1977; and 1978-1980 pertain to case files which may be available. There may be gaps for some years and individual case files may be missing.
