Dear Ms. Luke,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located Enumeration District and Related Maps, 1880 - 1990 in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that includes the file Enumeration District Maps for Adair County, Iowa. The file contains maps for the 1930 census. It does not include maps for 1900. There are also 1930 maps of Adair in the file Enumeration District Maps for Guthrie County, Iowa. In addition, we located Enumeration District Descriptions, 1850 - 1950 in Record Group 29 which includes textual descriptions of the 1900 and 1930 census enumeration districts. We also located Published Record Set of Decennial Census Maps, 1903 - 2002 in Record Group 29 that includes various maps regarding census findings and may include information about Adair County. These records are in the custody of the National Archives at College Park - Cartographic (RDSC). Please contact RDSC via email at email@example.com for more information.
