Investigation Files, 1940-1945
National Archives Identifier 6210742
This series consists of reports of investigations conducted by the Intelligence Office, 6th Naval District from 1940 to 1945. The files primarily contain investigation reports. Each report includes similar information: subject of the investigation, creator of the report, location of the report, time period of the incident, origin of the case, and a synopsis of the findings. Some of the subjects described in the investigation reports are confidential information regarding potential and current employees of the Charleston Naval Yard, marriages of sailors to prostitutes, censorship regulations, possible cases of sabotage, and suspected codes contained in "Life" magazine advertisements. The reports of potential and current employees consist of Labor Board Stops and Labor Board Employment lists. The Labor Board Stops identify individuals about whom the Intelligence Office maintained confidential information that would negatively impact their application for employment at the Charleston Naval Yard. The Labor Board Employment lists identify the names, job classifications, birth dates, and pay rates of personnel employed by the Charleston Naval Yard.
