Abstract:

This handbook consists of a directory of National Archives and military repositories that contain holdings relevant to the investigation of missing-in-action cases dating from the period between 1941 and 1960. The facilities listed in this directory may contain information relative to missing- in-action cases from other periods, but there has been no attempt to duplicate the efforts of the POWMIA Affairs office to compile information concerning the Southeast Asian War. For each facility, the handbook provides a description that includes the name, address, telephone number, and point of contact as well as a brief description of relevant holdings. There are three appendixes to the handbook suggested research methodologies Appendix A a glossary of commonly encountered acronyms Appendix B and a chronological list of MIA-related directives from the War Department issued between 1942 and 1947 Appendix C.
