Digitized Volumes

As part of my research in the National Archives, I have been slowly digitizing records I use repeatedly in my research or are in such bad condition I don’t want to continue using the original. This includes many of the letterbook volumes damaged in the 1921 fire at the Department of Commerce (this is the same fire that destroyed the 1890 census). I have shared one example – Letterbook 615 – as individual pages below. Letterbook 1103 is available through the National Archives catalog and is linked below. An alpha index for these letters received by the USLHB is available in RG 26 Entry 38.

    Note on this list the lighthouses were listed in groups in ascending order of the years established as opposed to listed along the coast from north to south.
