Dear Ms. Gossett,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Official Personnel Folders (OFPs), 1896 - 1951 in the Records of the Panama Canal (Record Group 185) that may include a folder for your husband's grandfather. For information regarding these records, please email the National Archives at St. Louis (RL-SL) via email at email@example.com.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RL-SL.
We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
