COLLECTION FINDING AID



OFFICE OF WHITE HOUSE CENTRAL FILES FILES, (1971) 1974-77

Permanent Operating Offices




SUMMARY DESCRIPTION

This collection consists of official statements of departing White House staff on the disposition of their files, records of changes and additions made by White House Central Files staff to their filing manual, and a collection of White House staff rubber name stamps. Also included in the collection are copies of the White House Central Files Subject Files filing manual and the White House East Wing / Social Office filing manual.

The log books for oversized attachments, oversized attachments shelf, and oversized attachment confidential file are included in this collection as well. The Office of White House Central Files logged and assigned control numbers to items filed in the oversized attachment files. To facilitate research, Ford Library staff interfiled many of the items listed in these logs in appropriate Ford Library collections. Many of the items listed in the oversized attachments shelf, however, were destroyed in accordance with the Librarys disposal authority. Ford Library staff annotated these logs to indicate the disposition or new location (name of collection) of the items. For more information about the oversized attachments files, consult the White House Central Files finding aid.
