Scope and Content Note

The subject category is composed of correspondence, messages, memoranda, cross references, notes, petitions, resolutions, press releases, cables, wires, reports, printed material and newspaper clippings concerning Federal financial aid to state and local governments or institutions, direct grants-in-aid, and revenue sharing. Major correspondents include Bryce N. Harlow, John D. Ehrlichman, Kenneth R. Cole, Jr., Richard K. Cook, Clark MacGregor, Edwin L. Harper, Robert H. Finch, Edward L. Morgan, William E. Timmons, James H. Cavanaugh, John C. Campbell, William L. Gifford, Leonard Garment, Melvin R. Laird, James H. Falk, Dana G. Mead, Roland L. Elliott, Peter M. Flanigan, Tom C. Korologos, Richard P. Nathan, Herbert G. Klein, Paul H. O'Neill, Murray L. Weidenbaum, James W. McLane, David N. Parker, Tod R. Hullin, Michael B. Smith, and Noble M. Melencamp. Related subject categories in the White House Central Files include Federal Government (FG) files for appropriate agencies, commissions and White House staff members; Finance (FI), Local Governments (LG), States-Territories (ST), Education (ED), Health (HE), Public Relations (PR), and Welfare (WE). The Name File and the Staff Member and Office Files also hold materials related to this subject category.

The Executive files typically contain communications among White House staff members and with heads of agencies, members of Congress and other important correspondents. Although General files material overlaps in type that of the Executive files - most notably in that both files usually contain exchanges with members of Congress - it is more likely to be composed primarily of communications with state and local officials, representatives of concerned organizations, and the general public.

For the years 1969-1970, the subdivision FA 4 Transportation was entitled Highways. The White House Filing Manual for 1971 broadened the coverage under this subdivision to include over forms of transportation. Prior to the establishment of the subdivision FA 7, Revenue Sharing, in 1971, material relating to this subject was filed under FA Federal Aid.
