The Presidential historical materials of Martin Anderson are in the custody of the National Archives and Records Administration under the provisions of Title I of the Presidential Recordings and Materials Preservation Act of 1974 (44 U.S.C. 2111 note) and implementing regulations. In accordance with the act and regulations, archivists reviewed the file group to identify personal and private materials (including materials outside the date span covered by the act) as well as nonhistorical items. These materials have been returned to the individual who has primary proprietary interest.

Materials covered by the Act have been archivally processed and are described in this register. Items which are security classified or otherwise restricted under the act and regulations have been removed and placed in a closed file. A Document Withdrawal Record (GSA Form 7279 or NA Form 14021) with a description of each restricted document has been inserted at the beginning of each folder from which materials have been removed. A Document Control Record marks the original position of the withdrawn item. Employees of the National Archives will review periodically the unclassified portions of closed materials for the purpose of opening those which no longer require restriction. Certain classified documents may be declassified under authority of Executive Order 13526 in response to a Mandatory Review Request (NA Form 14020) submitted by the researcher.

Scope and Content Note

The Michael Raoul-Duval staff member and office files document his activities on the Domestic Council staff from 1973 to 1974. He was primarily responsible for formulating policy in the areas of transportation, energy and rural and community development. Before joining the Domestic Council, Raoul-Duval served in various positions within the government, first as attorney with the Department of Transportation, then with H.R. Haldeman's staff to schedule and coordinate President Nixon's trips, followed by a position as White House liaison with HUD Secretary James T. Lynn. His office records do not contain any files from his previous positions within the White House; apparently he left them behind for his successors. What remains are files from his tenure on the Domestic Council staff.

He did not retain significant amounts of correspondence or memoranda, apparently referring incoming mail either to his subordinates, Glenn R. Schleede and Norman E. Ross, or to the agencies for reply. The files only sparsely document the follow-up coordination or end results of work delegated to his assistants. The few documents that pre-date his time on the Domestic Council staff are part of on-going working files that pertain to his work with the Domestic Council.

The files consist of one series which are arranged in alphabetical order by folder title. Originally, several folders did not have titles; these were created by the processing archivist and are bracketed. In a few instances, the folders are not arranged by the first word in the title but by another one. In these cases the letter under which the folder title has been arranged is underlined. For example, [Paper: Alternatives for Conservation of Aviation Jet Fuel - Federal Aviation Administration - October 23, 1973] is both a created folder title and filed under "A" for aviation rather than "P" for paper.
