The records described in the attached list are only a small proportion of the voluminous files that were accumulated in the several Paris offices. Many of them - those dealing with routine matters and the details of transactions, such as travel arrangements, messing lists, shipping receipts, and local personnel records - have been destroyed, either by UNRRA or subsequently by the United Nations. Operating files and some administrative materials pertaining to relief services and displaced persons work were turned over to PCIRO and are presumably now to be found among the IRQ records in the Archives Nationales, Paris. Other displaced persons files, which had been in Paris only briefly while the DP Central Headquarters was there, are now among the records of the Germany Mission.
The records include few directly related to supply programmes, as many of these had been prepared during closure, and not in the course of supply operations. A monograph and report on supply documentation will be found in Office of the Historian files. In Headquarters Central Registry files, will be found monthly reports and a general directive for the Mission.
The records in each subject series generally include correspondence and working papers filed together. The names of the divisions in this list have, in some cases, been chosen from several variations appearing in the records.
