CD: Preliminary Inventories of the Cartographic Records of the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations: Record Group 38, No. 85 - Charlotte M. Ashby. "The records described in this inventory are the separately filed cartographic records…They fall into three subgroups: records of the United States Naval Forces Operating in European Waters, 1917-19 (entry 1); records of fleets, vessels, and squadrons, 1907-18 (entries 2 and 3); and records of the Office of Naval Intelligence, 1885-1945 (entries 4 and 5). The records in the last subgroup are by far the most important…The cartographic records of the Office reflect its activities in the collection and distribution of information. The Office itself was directly responsible for the compilation of only a few of the map records. Most of them consist of annotated maps and charts forwarded by naval attaches abroad, private citizens, and agencies of the Federal Government. Many of these maps bear no indication of their origin, but they have a register number and may be identified by referring to the corresponding textual records, which are also in the National Archives. An appendix lists the individual maps by major world areas. Searchers may examine records dated earlier than 1941 without restriction. Those dated 1941 and later may be examined only with the permission of the Department of the Navy." (1955), 2006, CD, Adobe Acrobat, v6, Graphic Images, PC and Mac, 24 pp. 101-CD4027 ISBN: 0788440276
