This series consists of 28 rolls of 16mm microfilm of traffic logs and selected incoming and outgoing messages that passed through the White House communications center during the period 1/1/61 through 11/22/63. The entire series of microfilm is closed because a high proportion of the items filmed are classified CONFIDENTIAL and SECRET in accordance with national security regulations. Electrostatic copies of portions have been made available for research use as indicated. There is no indication from the material itself as to why these documents were selected for microfilming, although it is clear that the material here represents but a portion of the total traffic passed by the White House communications center. A cursory scan of the film indicates that it is not of good quality and that it is difficult to read on a standard 35mm microfilm reader. Of particular interest are logs of traffic passed during trips to Canada, Europe and South America in 1961, trips to Mexico City and Nassau in 1962, and the trip to Costa Rica in 1963. Of additional interest are logs and traffic passed during several of President Kennedy's trips around the United States, including his last trip to Texas in 1963. The series is arranged chronologically for the most part, although there are inconsistencies as may be noted in the list of contents.
