Annual Reports, Alien Property Custodian (Y 3.Al 4:1/, J 19.1:)

When the United States entered the First World War, the Office of the Alien Property Custodian was established to administer claims relating to the seizure and vesting of enemy-owned or enemy-controlled property during the war. This office also managed and liquidated all such vested assets during the 1920s and 1930s, and became active again with the onset of World War II. From its creation in 1917 until 1934, the Office was an independent commission. It was moved under the guidance of the Justice Department until 1942, when it fell briefly under the Executive Office of the President before returning to the Justice Department in 1946. The annual reports began with the 1918 report.
