My current research involves WWII African American Army Ground Forces Support Units such as Signal Corps, Engineers, Transportation Corps, etc. I have been unable to locate a comprehensive list of these units. This makes it extremely difficult to identify the units that are African American so I can target my research.
Given these units were segregated it seems logical that there are documents listing the African American units either by Branch or for the entire Army Ground Forces. I am particularly interested in the 1944-1945 time period. If that is the case, will you please help me locate them?
EDIT: Footnote #61 on page 436 of Wardlow's The Transportation Corps: Movements, Training, and Supply as the source for the following information. "Of a total of462 port companies in being on 31 March 1945, 350 were Negro and 112 were white; of 90 headquarters and headquarters detachments, 50 were Negro and 40 were white, Rpt, TC Pers, OCT HB Dir of Pers. This means there was at least one report which lists units being by race. May I please have the location information for this document? I also need the corresponding reports of the other technical services for the period 1944-1945.
