Hi Jake -
It looks like nothing from that record group (RG 170) has been digitized. However, there is a series from the Bureau of Narcotics spanning from 1932-1967. While the series, Classified Subject Files, is unprocessed and does not contain any digitized material, it may still have information of use to you.
You could contact the Archives 2 Reference staff at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if they have more information on the series. They might be able to narrow it down enough for you that you could order reproductions of the records. Or, conversely, you could hire a researcher to come and look at that particular series, or any others the Reference staff recommend. You can find more about Independent Researchers for Hire on the National Archives website.
Best of luck in your research!
This link should show you a list of the authorities for the Bureau of Narcotics and predecessors and successors. Under each organization name are links to catalog descriptions of the records created by these organizations. It is possible that NARA may have some additional records which are not yet in the online catalog.
The Guide to Federal Records may be useful, though it is a bit dated.
If you get to a point in your research where you are interested in the Official Personnel Folders for individuals who worked for the Bureau of Narcotics prior to 1952 those records are housed at the National Archives in St. Louis. You can submit your requests via email to email@example.com or via mail to
