Archival history

When this series was transferred to the Archives by the President's office in 1991, the transfer noted that the file on the Agency for International Development (AID) was with Mr. Kapur of the Brookings Institution history team and the file on the Department of the Treasury was with the President. Subsequently the AID file was transferred and interfiled. The Treasury file remains missing.
