Dear Mr. Hosmer,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 5 file units and 6 series of records in the Records of the Bureau of Animal Industry (Record Group 17) that related to Maryland. We also searched for records related to Bethesda or Norwood Park within Record Group 17, but those searches did not yield any results. These records have not been digitized. Please contact the National Archives reference unit listed in each Catalog description for assistance with these records. You may wish to conduct your own search for other keywords or topics within Record Group 17 using the Advanced Search feature of the Catalog.
We also located 15 series related to the Bureau of Animal Industry in the Records of the Agricultural Marketing Service (Record Group 136) and 12 series related to the Bureau of Animal Industry in the Records of the Office of the Secretary of Agriculture (Record Group 16) that may be of interest to you. These records have not been digitized. Please contact the National Archives reference unit listed in each Catalog description for assistance with these records.
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 each NARA reference unit. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
