Historical Note

The Federal Security Agency was created by the President's Reorganization Plan No. I of 1939, effective July 1, 1939, as an organization for the promotion of social and economic security, educational opportunity, and health. Upon its creation the FSA had oversight responsibility for the following constituent units transferred from other agencies: Office of Education, Public Health Service, National Youth Administration, Civilian Conservation Corps, Social Security Board, and U.S. Employment Service. The Radio Division and U.S. Film Service were transferred from the Department of the Treasury and incorporated into the Office of Education by Reorganization Plan No. II of 1939, effective July 1, 1939.
The agency's functions were not changed during World War II, but within their general scope the agency's activities were in certain respects altered or expanded to deal with special situations that were directly attributable to the war.
The FSA was abolished by Reorganization Plan No. 1 of 1953, effective April 11, 1953, with functions transferred to the newly established Department of Health, Education, and Welfare.
