Government Documents - Military and Veterans Agencies: Office of Civil Defense
War Department, Navy Department, Army, Department of Defense, Air Force, Marine Corps, National Military Establishment, Department of Veterans Affairs, and related agencies
The Office of Civil Defense (OCD) was originally established under the President as part of the Office of Emergency Preparedness. In 1961, it was transferred to the DoD. Later, in 1964, OCD was transferred to the Department of the Army. In 1972, it became the Defense Civil Preparedness Agency, again falling under DoD. Its functions were eventually transferred to the newly established Federal Emergency Management Agency in 1979, which is now part of the Department of Homeland Security.
Many documents are pamphlets, which are kept in pamphlet files in Government Documents. We also hold current and past laws and regulations related to civil defense as well as Congressional hearings and other publications about OCD.
