a Includes all types listed under this heading in Whiting, Statistics,
and comprises the great bulk of the types produced in this category.
b The four types listed here comprise the bulk of small arms am-
munition production; production of the other types are relatively
insignificant and the data are uncertain.
c Data not available.
d Totals for 1941; half-year totals not available.
Source: Data in the above table were obtained from a variety of
sources. The most recent official Department of the Army figures
on World War II procurement by the Army have been published
tentatively in Statistics, Procurement Section, 9 April 1952 draft.
This draft was prepared by Richard H. Crawford and Lindsley F
Cook under the direction of Theodore Whiting. Since, with certain
exceptions, it does not contain item totals for periods shorter than a
year, the data in the above table, except those for aircraft, were ob-
tained from other sources. These include various supporting work
papers to the Crawford and Cook draft, and an unpublished report,
"Procurement Issues and Stock," prepared in 1945 by Headquarters,
ASF, copies field in Office of the Comptroller of the Army; "Official
Munitions Production of the United States, By Months, July 1-
1940-August 31, 1945," prepared by Civilian Production Adminis,
tration, May 1, 1947; the "Monthly Progress Reports," Section 1-A,
Procurement, prepared by Headquarters, ASF. See also Biblio-
graphical Note.
