    Office of War Information (Record Group 208)



      I am looking for electronic copies of the files from the Office of War Information prior to and just after World War Two. I can access the Preliminary Inventory pdf but am having no luck finding the individual documents listed in the inventory. OWI's record group is 208.


      Thank you. Rhonda

          Dear Ms. Broadfoot,
