General note

Series Note

The material in this series dates from the end of World War II, when HMH was active in the Office of Price Administration. The bulk of the material is from the year 1946, but there are items as early as 1941 and as late as 1951.

Most of the items in this series are memoranda, notes, and mimeographed material that circulated within the OPA concerning the basis for price control and the various means and agencies of its enforcement. For the most part the arrangement is as it was found in Hart's own files. For additional material, see PAIGE BOXES I and II.
