Set 1 (1930-1971) is in original paper form, while set 2 (1941-1975, microfilmed 1985) is microfilm copy. The two offices sometimes worked on the same projects, but neither set contains all projects (records are usually not duplicated). Arranged in two sets of numerical sequences by project numbers.
