Ford Foundation records, Office of the President, Office Files of McGeorge Bundy (FA617)

Series IV: Trustees Files, 1966-1979

Scope and Contents

Consists of memoranda and some correspondence, agendas, and some "post-board briefings" (outlines of addresses to Foundation staff).

The TRUSTEE LETTERS contain Mr. Bundy's outgoing correspondence to the Board of Trustees. Most of the "Letters" are transmittal notes. However, some of the correspondence is more substantive. Many of these more-in-depth letters are duplicated elsewhere; for example, a letter dated September 9, 1966, on satellite television, is also filed in the Subject Files. The TRUSTEE MEETINGS subseries contains mailings to the Trustees, meeting agendas, and a small amount of correspondence with individual trustees. Most useful are Howard Dressner's memoranda to Bundy suggesting topics for post-Board briefings to the staff; some of these memoranda are duplicated in Series I. The TRUSTEE MEETINGS subseries does not include Trustee meeting minutes which can be found as part of the Board of Trustees records.
