This series contains subject files maintained by Myer Feldman in the course of his official duties. The records cover a wide variety of topics, such as agriculture, health and medicine, immigration, Israel and the Middle East, trade and tariffs, and transportation. Feldman contributed to policy development and legislative programming in these areas, and he handled incoming mail on most subjects represented in this series. He also served as liasion to the Eleanor Roosevelt Memorial Foundation, the President's Commission on Heart Disease, Cancer and Stroke, and President's Panel on Mental Retardation. On several occasions, Feldman compiled information detailing the accomplishments of the Kennedy administration, especially during the first year. He supervised the release of a revised edition of President Kennedy's book "A Nation of Immigrants," published after his death. He also directed a review of the non-profit status of certain right wing groups thought to be undertaking political work. The series contains transcripts of press conferences by both President Kennedy and President Johnson, as well as many files of speech materials. Folders under the heading of "Political Material" pertain to Johnson's 1964 presidential campaign; additional records on this subject can be found in Series 5. Task forces documented in this series were convened around the 1964 election to plan President Johnson's legislative program for 1965. Although the series contains numerous files on Israel, please be advised that many documents on this topic remain closed pending declassification review.
