INTRODUCTION 

THE Presidential Executive Order in the last fifty years has become a 
governmental instrument of broad and increasing importance, a fact made 
particularly obvious since 1933. In use from the earliest days of the 
Republic, the Executive Order was at first employed mainly for the dis- 
position of the public domain, for the withdrawal of lands for Indian, 
military, naval, and lighthouse reservations or other similar public pur- 
poses. Later it was much used for the creation, alteration, or disposition 
of forest, oil, gas and coal reserves, and for the withdrawal of public lands 
from sale or entry for purposes of accurate classification. It was also used 
to establish, transfer, and abolish land offices and land districts, supple- 
menting acts of Congress. It became an essential instrument in the evolu- 
tion of the civil service, blanketing into the classified service additional 
positions as authorized by law, promulgating rules for the service, and 
making plentiful individual exceptions and exemptions from those rules, 
both with and without the approval of the Civil Service Commission. It 
was used to effect various regulations applying to governmental employees 
outside as well as inside the growing classified service. It established days 
of mourning for the death of famous citizens. It extended Indian trust 
period allotments. It was employed to give public notice of changes of 
general interest in the regulations governing the consular and diplomatic 
services. Actual allocations of government funds were made, beginning 
with the blanket allotments for expenditures in the possessions newly 
acquired from Spain at the beginning of the century. Customs districts 
and offices were set up or altered by Executive Order. Regulations for the 
early government of the Canal Zone were established. Army regulations 
on punishments, both in peace and war, and on allowances for subsistence 
and housing, were set forth by the President through this vehicle. 

During World War I, the use of the Executive Order was widened as 
executive authority and power increased and its scope was again greatly 
broadened. Important agencies such as the Food Administration, the 
Grain Corporation, the War Trade Board, and the Committee on Public 
Information were set up by Executive Order. Presidential powers, vastly 
increased in wartime, were specifically delegated to subordinate officers by 
Presidential Order. Defense appropriations were allocated. Defensive 
sea areas were established. Censorship of the foreign language press was 
delegated to the Postmaster-General. Rules were established governing 
the behavior of enemy aliens. The interned ships of enemy powers were 
assigned for use. Sale of property in the hands of the Alien Property 
Custodian was regulated. Rules for wartime radio broadcasting were estab- 
lished. Bullion exports were regulated, and the non-combatant duties of 
conscientious objectors to military service were detailed. 

During the New Deal, the Executive Order was to see even wider and 
more vital usage, both in the administration of the recovery and reform 
programs and in the evolution of the defense and war projects. Agen- 
cies such as the National Labor Board and the War Labor Board were 
created by Executive Order. The reorganization of the Executive depart- 
ments and independent offices under the act of March 3, 1933, 1 was effected

by Order. Relief funds were allocated to specific agencies, NRA codes 
were approved, and part of the machinery for farm loans and the estab- 
lishment of the AAA were set up by Presidential Order. The export of 
bullion was embargoed. The bank holiday was ended, the Civil Service 
greatly extended, and the conservation program expanded by Executive 
Order. 

Different Types of Presidential Orders 

The President may issue orders in any one of three roles : as the civil 
Executive carrying out specific authorizations of the Congress; as the 
administrative head of the Executive branch of the government; or, as 
Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy. These different types of 
Presidential Orders today are known as "Executive," " Administrative/ ' 
and "Military" Orders, respectively. However, prior to the Roosevelt 
administrations no distinction was made between the first two, and many 
"Executive" orders of earlier date have been of an administrative nature. 
He may also issue "Presidential Regulations." These are Executive Or- 
ders, but were not so headed through the inadvertence of the person who 
drafted the Order, or of the Bureau of the Budget and the Department of 
Justice which today must pass on every Order prior to its submittal to 
the President. The List and Index do not include Military Orders, 
which are issued under a different authority and for very different pur- 
poses, or the Orders which have never been officially numbered, or the recent 
categories of Administrative Orders or Presidential Regulations. All are 
listed in the supplementary List and Index of Presidential Executive 
Orders: Unnumbered Series published by the Survey in New Jersey. 

The President may also order one of his Cabinet to issue an Order in 
his name, or upon his direction. Such Orders, signed by officials other 
than the President, are included in this list only where they have received 
numbers. They are footnoted with the exact signature of the signer and 
his title as given on the Order. 

The President also very frequently sends letters or memoranda to his 
subordinates, directing them to do some particular thing, or clothing them 
with some particular power. These technically may be called "Presiden- 
tial Letters" and as such are omitted from this compilation, except for a 
very few early letters which have the applicability and general interest 
of later Orders, and which have been included by Government officials 
in the numbered series. 

Varieties of the Executive Order 

As anyone who is acquainted with the earlier Executive Orders knows, 
no uniformity of form or style was established prior to 1873, when, in the 
second administration of President Grant, the present form of the Order 
became relatively well stabilized. 

This variety of form creates the problem, particularly acute in the 
earlier years, of just what is and what is not to be classified correctly as 
an Executive Order. Where today the President would issue a formal and 
detailed Order based on a draft prepared for his signature by a Cabinet 
officer, many of his predecessors merely inscribed the word "Approved" 
at the bottom of a Cabinet member's recommendation. At other times, the 
President would write "Let it be done," or "I approve the accompanying 

[vi] 



recommendation, and order that it be effected." Such Orders are indi- 
cated by an abstract of the recommendation on which the President acts, 
enclosed in brackets, and followed by the word " approved.' ' 

Some orders were signed at the President's direction by his secre- 
tary, such orders being incorporated in the numbered series as late as 
1899. 2 Some were signed, also at the direction of the President, or in the 
absence of the President, by the Secretary of State. 8 In fact seven of the 
first thirty-three Orders of the numbered series (E. O.s 1 to 28-1 inclusive) 
were signed by the latter official. Recently the Federal Register has at 
least momentarily reverted to earlier practice and thereby has revived 
problems thought dead for fifty years, by publishing in the numbered 
series occasional Orders of the departmental heads * which have the same 
effect in the same fields as earlier Presidential Orders. 

Availability op the Executive Orders 

Some compilations of Orders have been published on such special sub- 
jects as Indian Reservations, the Panama Canal, the PWA, Veterans' 
Regulations, etc. Many Civil Service Orders appear both in the Annual 

Report of the Civil Service Commission (Washington, 1883- ), and 

in the compilation known as Civil Service Acts, Rules, Regulations, etc. 
(Washington, 1883-1937), though in both compilations many Orders are 
given only by abstracts of the original. Other Orders appear in the 
United States Code (Washington, 1935, with supps.), the Canal Record* 
(Mount Hope, C. Z., 1907-1928), the Handbook of N.R.A. (Washington 
and New York, 1934), the Codes of Fair Competition (Washington, 1933- 
1935), the Report of the Alien Property Custodian (Washington, 1918), 
Emergency Legislation Passed Prior to December 1917 (Washington, 
1919) and Immigration Laws and Regulations (Washington, 1939, with 
annual supplements since). Still other sources are listed below pp. 6-8. 

The recent Code of Federal Regulations of the United States contains 
a listing of all Orders cited anywhere in the Code, arranged both by Code 
title, i.e. subject, and by number. But since the Code contains only Or- 
ders of current applicability and general interest, obviously a great many 
Orders are not there listed. Since its inception in 1895 under the General 
Printing Act of that year, 5 the Documentary Catalog has listed every Exec- 
utive Order printed in slip form by the Government Printing Office, 
whether included in the numbered series or not. From 1925 to 1936, these 
slip copies of Orders were made available in a small number of depository 
libraries throughout the country. 

The Federal Register Act of June 26, 1935,* provided for the trans- 
mission to a new Division of the Federal Register in the National Archives 
of three copies of certain types of public documents, including Executive 
Orders, prior to Presidential signature. This Division was charged with 
keeping the original when signed, and with transmitting one copy to the 
Government Printing Office for publication in the new Federal Register, 
the first copy of which appeared March 14, 1936. 

According to this act, there were to be printed in the Federal Register 

*E. 0.8 112 and 113.

"(1) all Presidential proclamations and Executive Orders, except such 
as have no general applicability and legal effect or are effective only against 
Federal agencies or persons in their capacity as officers, agents or em- 
ployees thereof; (2) such documents or classes of documents as the Presi- 
dent shall determine from time to time have general applicability and 
legal effect, and (3) such documents or classes of documents as may be 
required so as to be published by Act of Congress." 4 This naturally 
greatly increased the availability of many of the Orders for the period 
since 1936, but the restrictions as to "general applicability and legal 
effect' ' substantially limits the number of Orders appearing in the Reg- 
ister. A large number of Orders still are published only in slip form, 
though every Order must today pass through the Division of the Federal 
Register, where it receives a number, whether subsequently published in 
the Register or not. 

A full file of the Orders of the numbered series is maintained in the 
State Department Records, National Archives, while current Orders are 
filed in the Division of the Federal Register. There is also a complete file 
of those Orders in the Law Library of Columbia University. 

As will immediately be seen, all the above sources represent only par- 
tial approaches to the total mass and subject matter of the Executive 
Orders. Of the great bulk of the material in these Orders there is today 
no other full list, no other detailed index. 

The Numbered and the Unnumbered Order 

No distinction can be made between the numbered and the unnum- 
bered Order on the basis of subject matter, general applicability, public 
interest, or legal effect. The sole difference is an arbitrary one based 
entirely on whether the given Order does or does not bear a number. 

This numbering was begun by the Department of State in 1907, at 
which time all of the relatively few Orders then on file in that Depart- 
ment were arranged chronologically and given a number, as was every 
Order subsequently filed. These numbers are recorded in the Documentary 
Catalog from 1907 on (60th Congress ff). Back Orders later added to 
this file were given " in-between' * numbers. 1 

But still many Orders did not make their way into the files of the 
State Department, and so did not receive numbers. President Hoover 
made a fairly successful attempt to end this situation and to regularize 
the preparation and handling of these documents by Executive Order 
5220* of November 8, 1929, in which he outlined a procedure by which 
drafts of both proclamations and Orders were to be sent in triplicate to 
the White House via the State Department, each draft bearing a suitable 
title, and conforming both to the latest decisions of the United States 
Geographic Board on the spelling of geographical terms, and to the Style 
Manual of the Government Printing Office on orthography and punctua- 
tion. The State Department was to keep one copy of the draft Order and 

t Distinguished by the "-A," "%," "-1," etc., following the number. 

• President Harding had made an earlier attempt to achieve conformity by Execu- 
tive Order 3577 in which he fixed the form of the recital immediately preceding the 
President's signature on proclamations, commissions and other formal documents, and 
authorized the Secretary of State to supplement it with suggestions for general uni- 
formity in Proclamations and Executive Orders. 

[ viii ] 



the signed original. This Order (5220) was slightly modified by Execu- 
tive Orders 5658 of June 24, 1931, and 6427 of August 10, 1933. Orders 
approving NRA codes of fair competition were specifically excepted from 
this procedure by Executive Order 6497 of December 15, 1933. Present 
procedure is regulated by Executive Order 7298 of February 18, 1936. 9 

The volume of unnumbered Orders was substantially reduced by the 
numbering system inaugurated in 1907. The procedural Orders since 
November 8, 1929, have practically eliminated the unnumbered Order. 

Some eighty-six hundred Executive Orders found a place in the num- 
bered series up to January 1, 1939. The importance of the data embodied, 
and the actions taken in these Orders has made this volume seem an addi- 
tion worth making to the existing tools for the study of American history, 
law and government. To this material the List is the calendar or chrono- 
logical key, the Index the topical key. 

The thanks of the editors are extended to Columbia University, which, 
through its Department of History and its library staff, particularly Dr. 
C. C. Williamson, Miles O. Price and Dorothy M. Peake, has contributed so 
much to the present volume. The staff of the National Archives has gen- 
erously aided the editors in answering many of the questions of incorrect 
dating and other problem entries which occur in the available printed 
Orders. To Dr. Philip Hamer is due our special thanks. To him goes 
credit for eliminating a considerable number of possible errors. To us 
belongs the blame for any which may remain. 

The editors wish to express their gratitude to Dr. Luther H. Evans 
and Sargent B. Child, former national directors of the Survey, to J. L. 
Ginniff, Audrey MacMahon, and Dr. George C. Groce of the New York 
City WPA, for their personal interest and attention which were of appre- 
ciable aid to the production of this volume; and to Helen Calhoun, Eva 
Flint, Elizabeth Hollos, Sally Cathrell, Ethel Pitney, and Virgil Regal- 
buto, members of the compiling staff, without whose understanding help 
the task would have been much greater than it proved to be.

THE LIST 

A CAREFUL check was made of the files of Executive Orders in the 
Division of the Federal Register in the fall of 1938, and every Order at 
that time included in the numbered series has been here listed. The List 
is based upon this source. The full text of each Order has been used as 
the basis of each abstract. 

The effect or extent of amendments in the various series of regulations 
is given in the entries in the List where stated in the Order, or where obvi- 
ous from the text, except for occasional Civil Service Orders, or Orders 
amending the Consular Regulations or the Instruction to Diplomatic Offi- 
cers which are so long and so involved as to make it impossible to detail 
the full extent of the changes made. In such cases the entry merely notes 
that the rules have been " amended' ' or " revised.' ' The reader may know 
from this that the changes have been too extensive to list or that their 
effect is obscure. 

A knowledge of certain special word usages in the List will help its 
user get fuller information from the entries than would otherwise be the 
case. The word described appearing in land orders indicates that the 
lands are described in detail in that Order. In other land orders, reserva- 
tions are spoken of as enlarged or diminished if only additions or subtrac- 
tions are effected by the Order. If some lands are added and others 
' removed from the reservation by the same Order, the word modified is 
used to describe the action taken. 

Similarly specified or designated, as applied to people, positions, etc., 
indicate that the text of the Order actually names the people or positions 
affected. 

The names of customs collection districts are entered (in parentheses) 
after the number of the district only where the name of the district differs 
from the name of the State mentioned earlier in the entry. 

Many Orders bear the footnote Has form of a proclamation. This 
means that the Order is drawn either with a series of " whereas" clauses, 
or with the conclusion "Done at the City of Washington," both of which 
are typical of the formal proclamation, or that it is drawn to contain both. 
All NRA code Orders have the form of a proclamation in this sense. Excep- 
tions to this rule are noted in the entries. 

The words Miss or Mrs. are used only before those women's names 
which without such designation might be confused with men's. 

The words United States are omitted from the titles of official bodies 
except where their omission might create ambiguity. When used as a 
noun, United States is spelled out ; when used as an adjective, it is abbrevi- 
ated. 

All Orders are listed in their chronological order. This means that 
occasionally the numerical sequence is disrupted. In such cases a see entry 
refers the reader from the place he might expect to find that entry in its 
numerical order to the date under which it appears. Chronological order 
rather than numerical order was used because of the occasional violations 
of logical sequence which strict adherence to numerical order would have 
caused. 

All List entries use a contracted form of Department, Departmental 
head, bureau and office names. These briefed forms are designed to con- 

[x] 



serve space without detracting from the clarity of the entry's meaning. 

Abbreviations in the text of the entries include State names appearing 
after other geographical place names within those States, months in dates, 
designations of length or area, and the titles of military officers preceding 
the name. The following abbreviations are also used: 
Dept. Department 

E. O. Executive Order
