Biographical history

L. Peter Chatenay began his World Bank career in the Administration Department in July 1961 and served there until June 1969 when he transferred to the European Office. During the remainder of his Bank career, he served as the Deputy Special Representative for United Nations Organizations, 1971 - 1974; Senior International Relations Specialist, September 1974; an External Relations Adviser and later Senior Adviser in the International Relations Department, 1974 - 1983. He ended his World Bank career as the World Bank Representative to U.N. Organizations in Geneva, 1983 - 1985.

Archival history

Immediate source of acquisition or transfer

While it is assumed that the Bank Archives has maintained custody of the records in this fonds following their transfer, the specifics of that transfer (i.e. which unit transferred the records, when the records were transferred, and what, if any, schedule was used) has been lost or was not recorded. It is likely, however, that they accompanied Chatenay's records from his work as secretary of the Economic Development Institute Task Force in 1982-1983.

Content and structure area

Scope and content

This sub-fonds contains memoranda and reports compiled by L. Peter Chatenay that primarily relate to the World Bank's early organization and staffing. It would seem that these materials were prepared in support of Chatenay's participation in the Organization Study Team which was created in support of the 1972 Bank-wide reorganization.
