Dear Mr. Ohlsson,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located a series titled World War II Combat Operations Reports, 1941 - 1946 in the Records of the Army Air Forces (Record Group 18) that includes 9 files for the 23rd Statistical Control Unit. We also located Mission Files, 1947 - 1965 (documenting 1945 - 1965) in the Records of Headquarters U.S. Air Force (Air Staff) (Record Group 341) that includes Item 22 321.051 Organization HQ. AAF Air Comptroller Statistical Control Division 1946. Additionally, we located Statistical Reports Covering Allied and U.S. Air Forces Attack Data, 1945 - 1946 and Statistical Reports Covering U.S. Army Air Force and Royal Air Force Operational and Attack Data, 1945 - 1945 in the Records of the U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey (Record Group 243) that includes data derived from the Statistical Control Division. Finally, we located 12 series, 78 file units, and 46 items while searching for “Machine Records Unit.” from various record groups. For information about these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
RDT2 also has custody of microfilm copies of operational records relating to the U.S. Army Air Force units. We searched the Air Force History index to the microfilm and located multiple files relating to the 23rd Statistical Control Unit, the 26th Statistical Control Unit, and the 28th Statistical Control Unit. We were unable to locate records for the 30th Statistical Control Unit. Please read the brief Abstract to determine which records you are interested in and click on the specific PDF icon. In the PDF listing, the IRISREF is the microfilm reel number and note the FRAME and FRAMELST numbers for the location on the reel. If the reel number begins with A, B or C, please contact RDT2 for more information.
If the reel number begins with D - Z, the microfilm is still security classified and RDT2 will not be able to make the reel available to you. The original paper copy from which the film was created is still in the custody of the Air Force Historical Research Agency (AFHRA) and has been declassified. To obtain copies of these records, please follow the instructions on this page.
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 RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
