Major correspondents include John D. Ehrlichman, John C. Whitaker, H.R. Haldeman, Anne Armstrong, Leonard Garment, Tom C. Korologos, Bryce N. Harlow, Herbert G. Klein, Dwight L. Chapin, Ronald L. Ziegler, Kenneth E. BeLieu, William E. Timmons, James D. Hughes, Peter M. Flanigan, Rose Mary Woods, David N. Parker, John R. Brown, III, Raymond K. Price, Jr., Noble M. Melencamp, Michael B. Smith, Richard K. Cook, Hugh W. Sloan, Jr., Daniel P. Moynihan, Rogers C.B. Morton and Walter J. Hickel. Related subject categories in the White House Central Files include Federal Government (FG) files for concerned agencies, commissions and White House staff; Indian Reservations (IN), Natural Resources (NR), Public Relations (PR), Real Property (RA), Recreation (RE) and Veterans Affairs (VA). The Staff Member and Office Files, particularly those of John Whitaker, 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 file material overlaps in type that of the Executive files, most notably in that both files usually contain exchanges with members of Congress, it is likely to be composed primarily of communications with state and local officials, representatives of concerned organizations and the general public.
