    Are records of Office of Chief Special Agent, State Department available?

      I'm wondering if the records for the Office of the Chief Special Agent within the State Department are available to the public and, if so, accessible online. I'm specifically looking for all documentation regarding the visit by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth to the U.S. in June 1939. Chief Special Agent Robert C. Bannerman, Office of the Chief Special Agent, was tasked with coordinating security arrangements for the Royals' tour. FDR first invited King George VI in late fall/early winter of 1938, so I'm assuming preparations by the Chief Special Agent began around then, or in the beginning of the new year of 1939. Any direction on how to access these archives (if available) would be appreciated. Thanks, in advance, for the help!
