Editor’s Note.—In indexing persons the intention has been to include references to persons of significance for an understanding of the record. References to persons in the following categories have in general been omitted: historic personages; persons appearing only as recipients or as transmitting agents of documents or information; Secret Service agents; authors, journalists, and composers, unless mentioned in some other capacity; civilian clerical personnel; enlisted personnel of the armed services; and other persons having only a slight substantive connection with the record to whom only passing reference is made in the documents.

For identification of persons mentioned in this volume, see the List of Persons Mentioned, ante, pages xlviiilxxiii.
