PRESIDENTIAL FILES OF NSC LOGGED DOCUMENTS:

SELECT DOCUMENTS ARRANGED BY LOG NUMBER, 1974-77




SUMMARY DESCRIPTION

Originals and photocopies of documents handled and logged by the NSC Secretariat and designated for filing in the Institutional File (IF) or the NSC File (NS). Because the IF and NS files were part of the permanent institutional files retained by the NSC at the end of the administration, the Secretariat routinely photocopied these documents for inclusion in the Presidentís papers. Years later the NSC turned over some originals of IF and NS documents to the Library. Each series is arranged by NSC document log number.

Most of this collection is unprocessed and closed to research. The container list shows what is currently open.

QUANTITY
25.8 linear feet (ca. 51,600 pages)

DONOR
Gerald R. Ford (accession numbers 77-118, 82-63, 95-29, and 97-15)

ACCESS
Only a portion of this collection has been processed and opened to research. The rest of the collection is still unprocessed and closed. In the processed portions, some items are temporarily restricted under terms of the donor's deed of gift, a copy of which is available on request, or under National Archives and Records Administration general restrictions (36 CFR 1256).

COPYRIGHT
Gerald Ford donated to the United States of America his copyrights in all of his unpublished writings in National Archives collections. The copyrights to materials written by other individuals or organizations are presumed to remain with them. Works prepared by U.S. Government employees as part of their official duties are in the public domain.
