Official Personnel Record of Joseph Tucker Phillips, born 1877 - died 1959

After securing his place with the new Alcohol Tax Unit of the Department of Treasury Granddad continues with both investigations and "raids". Included in these files are injury reports from raids he lead, one in 1936 and another in 1938.
In 1938 during another period of downsizing his superior is asked togive recommendations for the Special Investigators working under his authority. He gives the following assessment of Joseph Phillips:

Mr. Phillips a hard working, conscientious and well qualified investigator, having had approximatelyfifteen years experience in investigative work, a part of which time he was Deputy Administrator, and Assistant Administrator, Enforcement, Bureau or Prohibition.
Mr. Phillips has natural detective instincts which, coupled with his long years of experience, and training, make him an outstanding investigator. In fact he can come as near taking one or two small clues and by exhaustive investigation and untiring efforts, delvelop a stong conspiracy case involving any number of persons, as any investigator the writer has had the pleasure of knowing.
Mr. Phillips is unexcelled in his loyalty and attention to duty, and can be relied upon in every respect. He is definaitely an asset to any investigative force.
Also beginning in 1938 there are a couple of major investigations of allegations made by an inmate of an Atlanta prison. Just another example of continued reports within that agency of major corruption with no one exempt from suspition.
