          Dear Ms. Harris,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 6 series in the Records of Headquarters Army Service Forces (Record Group 160); and a series General Correspondence, 1940 - 1942 in the Records of Headquarters Army General Forces (Record Group 337) that may contain information about the 310th College Training Detachment at Michigan State College. For more information about these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) at archives2reference@nara.gov.

           

          We also located the Population Schedules for the 1930 Census, and  the Population Schedules for the 1940 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that may contain information about Rinehold Miller in North Dakota. The 1940 Census schedules are digitized and available using the Catalog. For more information about the non-digitized schedules, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at archives1reference@nara.gov

           

          For information about the U.S. Census, see the Census Bureau technical documentation and questionnaires as well as NARA’s page on Census Records.

           

          You may wish to search Ancestry or FamilySearch for the U.S. Census. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, please check for access at your local library as many library systems subscribe to these sites, making them free for their patrons.

           

          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 RDT1 and RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.

           

          We suggest that you contact MSU Libraries & University Archives for any information in its holdings about the graduating class of August 21, 1943 referenced in your request. Also, you may wish to review the History of Michigan State University Army ROTC website for any information and/or resources.

           

          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
