As a part of the Library's Bicentennial projects in the early 1970's, Roy studied and wrote annotations for some 900 books for "Revolutionary America, 1763-1789" (Washington, DC: Library of Congress, 1984, 2 v., 1671 pp.). The green binders in several book cases behind him ultimately contained one page for each of the 14,810 entries in this definitive bibliography.

Reviewer Bernard Freidman, Indiana University-Indianapolis wrote:

". . . Finally, the compiler is to be congratulated on the restraint shown in the annotations accompanying about 40 percent of the entries. . . . Gephart’s annotations are scrupulously objective in describing the contents or point of view of an article or book. . . ." ["Indiana Magazine of History," (Bloomington: History Dept, Indiana Univ.), v. 81 No. 1 (March 1985), pp. 77-78.]

The following year, Roy transferred to the Manuscript Division and arranged the nearly one thousand box collection of Josephus Daniels, who was Secretary of the Navy, 1913-1921, under Woodrow Wilson and Ambassador to Mexico before World War II under Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
