This document makes availalDle for confidential use nithin the 
Division of Reviev/ the outline that is follo^ved in the preparation 
of code histories. An examination of this outline will throvr light 
upon the material useful in connection uith studies v;hich will be 
found in each code histor^T-, 

Although the outline contained herein ^.vas issued July 10, 1935 
"by the Division of Hevien and although the Division of Review '.vas 
from the first assigned the duty of reviewing and revising code 
histories, it v.'as not until the latter half of August that full Juris- 
diction of the preparation of code histories \7as vested in the 
Division of Review, The code histories fall into tr/o major groups: 

1, The histories of formally ajjproved codes. There are 
in Central Records 757 approved codes and supplements. 
In connection r/lth these, 814 separate histories are 
"being prepared in order to cover adeo^uatelj'^ the situa- 
tion in certain industries in v;hich there v/ere a numher 
of chapters to the code. As of Deceraher 11, 1935, 374 
of these code histories were completed, and 168 others 

2, The histories of codes not formally a.pproved hut concern*- 
ing v;hich the records contain valuable material. There 
are 259 such cases. As of December 11, 1935, 89 of these 
were completed ajid 51 others started. 

In addition to code histories, histories are being prepared of the 
activities of particular divisions, boards, and other agencies of the 
National Recovery Adj-ainistration, 

Information concerning the histories that are available for examina- 
tion may be secured from, R, C, Ayers, Commerce Building, Room 4309 —

SIBJECT: Code Histories 

The folloTTing is a revision of the memorand-um of the Code 
Administration Director, dated l.iay 29, 1935, (Code Histories). 

A doc-amented history of each code will "be prepared "by deputies 
and their assistants, to he in accordance -jith the outline hereinafter set 
forth. The or.tline is not to he digressed from except for such additional 
discussion as may "be necessary or desirahle or in the treatment of a special 
prohlem of the industry wherein it would he impossible to follow the outline, 

A letter of transmittal should accompany the code history incor- 
porated in the vol-'ome just after the tahle of contents. The letter of trans- 
mittal should he prepared ''oy the deputy or other officer charged with the 
responsihility of comT)iling and v;riting the history, addressed to the divi- 
sion administrator, or other officer in charge, stating that the history 
has heen ^rritten in accordance with the model outline, and that in his opin- 
ion the submitted record adequately reflects the history of the c^de. The 
letter should contain a signature line (lower left hand corner) for the 
division administrator or other officer in charge, under the word "Approved, " 

There should, he a short preface to each history which will indi- 
cate the identity and. experience of the compilers thereof with the subject 
matter, Obviouslj'- a history compiled by the deputy connected ^-^ith a code 
and its problems from its very inception or for the greatest period of time 
would carry the presumption of greater authority than one compiled by a 
deputjr of lesser experience with the industry. The author and co-euthors, 
if any, should certify to the authenticity of that part of the history 
written by them by affixing their signature thereto. 

Code histories should contain all information concerning the code, 
therefore it v/ill be necessary for the author or authors thereof to put into 
histories information i;hich is not a natter of record, but lies within the re- 
collection and personal ]aiowledge of those connected with the code. Since 
the code histories are for use within the administration and not for public 
use all such information should be set forth in the histories in order that 
they will completely embrace all unrecorded discussions and opinions. Fnere 
no written record exists a notation to tliat effect should follow the state- 
ment of the author giving the source of his knowledge of the facts, i.e., 
participation in conferences, etc. 

If there were no written or verbal communications bearing on any 
point mentioned in the outline the deputy should so state under the proper 
heading so as to avoid inference that the subject was overlooked. 

Reports will be obtained from adjninistration members 
on such subjects as they are best fitted to discuss. These reports 
are of the utmost importance and copies thereof should be included,

as exhibits in the appendix of the code histories for the follor/ing 


1. General inf omia.tion. 

2. Operation of code provisions. 

3. I^inctionin^ of the administerinj^^- hody. 

4. Adeq-u.acy of industry statistics. 

5. Reconmer^dations. 

Stress is laid on complete doc-uxient.^'.tion of t'-.ese hiL'tori3s 
In no case -jill reference to source of material "by docmient and pa,^e "be 
omitted * 

Each volume \7ill conclude with a detailed and thorough alpha- 
betical index. Volumes v;ill be bound in blue covers. 

An original and five carbons will be made and bound, and when 
completed will be for\;arded to the records section (Hoora 4321, Commerce 
Building) for revicv/ and further disposition. 

Reference to the code provisions and amendments thereto should 
be made by article and section and by page number of code or amendment as 

Administrative Orders should shoj order number, date and approv- 
ing official. 

Reference to reports of Government agencies other than ITRA should 
give title and page, industry t-md. release number, and digest or e"tract of 
im^Dortant material. If not too voluminous a copy should be included in the 

Reference to deputy's, general or other files should be so detailed 
and specific that the material referred to may be readily located, including 
date, name of sender and addressee of any communication referred to and where 
possible a digest or extract of important material contained in the doc-oment 
found in such files should appear in the history. 

If the doc^ojnent is voluninous (such as transcript of hearing) refer 
specifically to page and volume and ouote extracts if desirable or such por- 
tions thereof as will convey the desired ideas adequately. In this way the gist 
of such material is incorporated in the history and the docuiiient becomes a 
collateral. If the document is brief and readily lends itself to copying with- 
out too great a sacrifice of time and effort, it may be copied and made an 
exliibit to be bound as an appendix. Fnen more than one document falls in such 
a class the exhibits of course should be clearly identified and reference made 
thereto at the proper place in the body of the history, 

I. General Inf ormat ion 

Reference should be made to the location of the primary material which is 
the basis of research for the specific studies to be made.

In thone industries whose Code provides for lalDels, 
the history should recite the success or failure of labels 
as a medium of income and the total ajnount of income 
therefrom should "be sup^^lied witn appropriate reference. 
If the Code did not provide for the use of la'bels, there 
should he a statement to this effect.

It is important, under this headin^;^, to show the 
success ov failure of the Industry to finance itself 
through assessment, and particularly to show possible 
lack of interest in later Code periods "by reporting 
the falling off of collections as compared with earlier 
periods of code coverage, and to recite, in addition 
thereto, methods used by the Code Authority,
