Papers of John F. Kennedy. Presidential Papers. President's Office Files. Staff Memoranda. Schlesinger, Arthur M., 1961: March-April
The Staff Memoranda series was established by the President's personal secretary to contain memoranda from the President to staff members and from staff members in the White House to the President. At the beginning of the series is an incomplete collection of carbon copies of outgoing memoranda dictated by the President to Mrs. Lincoln. The remainder of the series consists of fragmentary records of memoranda from the staff to the President. Most of such memoranda may be found scattered throughout this and other Presidential Papers in topical series appropriate to the subject matter of the memoranda. Like so many of these files, this series is in no way a complete record of all transactions between the President and the members of his White House staff. It is simply a collection of memoranda that came to hand in the office of the personal secretary and were filed by her in a series she called "Staff Memoranda." The Staff Memoranda series is alphabetically arranged by name of staff member, except that the first folder consists of the special set of outgoing memos mentioned above (arranged alphabetically within the folder by name of staff member). A comparison of the folder title list with lists of staff members (such as may be found in the U.S. Government Organization Manual) shows that not all staff members are represented in this series. Researchers should consult other series of the President's Office Files, the numerous collections of White House Staff Files, the White House Overflow Files, and the personal papers collections donated by staff members.
