This is an artificial collection of photocopies of original documents scattered among many individual collections at the Ford Library. It was created as a directed field experience by a student in the University of Michigan's School of Information and Library Studies.
The collection documents Ford Cabinet meetings in two ways. Firstly, materials such as agendas, briefing papers, and talking points reflect the preparation for each Cabinet meeting. Secondly, minutes, personal notes, press conference transcripts, and follow-up memoranda provide valuable insight into the meetings themselves. The files are arranged chronologically, with each meeting's set of preparation documents followed by a folder of notes or minutes. Two folders of general information precede the chronological files.
1.6 linear feet (ca. 3,000 pages)
