Detailed Description of Part I, Series F,2: Records re: Individuals in CPS (Supplement) [formerly Series D-S]
In this checklist, underlined words are box headings
Restrictions apply to all boxes/folders that contain information about individual men


These files do not just contain discharge records, but are composed of all forms and correspondence generated about each man/woman in CPS. Also note that "Junior" was sometimes used as a middle name, as per some names below. A listing such as Smucker, Adam, Jr. should be read as Adam Smucker Jr.; similarly Smucker, Adam, II should be read as Adam Smucker II.

D-S = Discharges (Supplement); RC = reclassified; number refers to CPS camp/s; I-A-O = inducted into military noncombatant service; none = no religious affiliation
Notations (in brackets) that appear after names were transcribed from original folders kept by NSBRO. Material in this collection has since been refoldered and reboxed.
