Please contact them at email@example.com with questions about their holdings.
Most of the Records of the United States Coast Guard [USCG] (Record Group 26) are in the custody of the Textual Reference Branch at the National Archives in Washington, DC. We recommend that you email them directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with these records.
Additionally, the National Archives at Atlanta, GA has many records from the 7th Coast Guard District, which included U.S. Coast Guard Station-St. Simons Island (also known as East Beach Station). Please contact them at email@example.com with questions about these records.
According to this history, the station was built as part of President Roosevelt’s Public Works Administration projects. It is possible that you might find some helpful information in the Records of the Public Works Administration [PWA] (RG 135).
