Dear Mr. Chub,
Thank you for posting your request on the History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located a series titled the Subject Correspondence, 1/1/1939 - 6/30/1950 of the Office of the Commandant in the Records of the U.S. Marine Corps (Record Group 127) that includes a file unit titled 2385 Strength - Distribution (manpower, T/Os [tables of organization], organization, establishment) [January 1941 - February 1942] that may include the information you seek. Although, the records could be just the correspondence about T/Os and not the actual tables. For access to and/or copies of this file unit, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at email@example.com.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with you research!

I also recommend looking at an Osprey Publishing book titled US Marine Corps Pacific Theater of Operations 1941-1943 by Gordon Rottman and published in 2004 (ISBN 1-84176-518-X). The book contains an extensive discussion of the development of USMC divisional tables of organization (T/O) during 1941-42.
I hope you can find this information useful.
Thank you very much for your attention. I have a book that you are linking to. This is a good and interesting book, but it has 2 drawbacks (from my point of view):
1. Description of the organization of the Marine Corps - almost from 1942. (I'm interested in - 1941)
2. There are no tables of organization in the book.
Dear Rebecca Collier,
Thanks for the answer. I wrote a letter to the address that you recommended. When I receive an answer, I will inform you and other interested parties.
