As I had turned my 1939 Underwood Master typewriter over, this part fell out (see link above).  I know it's part of the carriage.  However, I do not know any specifics on location and where it should go?

Any help out there?

It's about 3/4 of an inch long.

Looks like the end opposite the hole has broken off?

It looks like the carriage frame stop:

Yes it is definitely the carriage frame stop.  It should be secured by a long screw (which also holds the plate on that has the scale on it, just as shown in the illustration).

Thanks, great diagram.  Where would I find that type of diagram for this typewriter?

That diagram came from a standard typewriter repair manual pdf, which can be found towards the bottom of the Classic Typewriter Page, here, under service manuals. It is called:

Ames Typewriter Mechanical Training Manual, 1945, vol. 1, for Remington, Underwood carriage-shift, Royal, L.C. Smith, and Woodstock standard typewriters, by Clarence LeRoy Jones

It may be a different model than yours (I can't remember which Underwood was covered in that manual), but should share many of the mechanics.
