The Presidential historical materials of Ronald Ziegler 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 (P. L. 93-526, 88 Stat. 1695) and implementing regulations. In accordance with the act and regulations, archivists reviewed the materials to identify personal and private materials as well as non-historical items. These materials have been returned to Ziegler.

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) 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 A Document Control Record marks the original position of the withdrawn item.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 Ronald Ziegler file group combines materials brought into the White House Special Files from three different file groups: those of Ronald Ziegler, Agnes Waldron, and the Press Office. The materials in this file group reflect most strongly Agnes Waldron's work as head of the Correspondence Research office, though some of the materials arranged by type into the last two series may have been kept apart from Waldron's research file.

The materials are arranged into eight series:

  1. Alphabetical Subject File
  2. Numberical Subject File
  3. Numerical Subject File, Foreign Affairs and Defense
  4. Numerical Subject File, Presidential Meetings
  5. Briefing Materials, Meetings with Heads of State
  6. Foreign Policy Position Papers
  7. Talking Points Memoranda
  8. Press Office News Summaries

All of the files reflect the first imperative of the Press Secretary–the need to be informed. They are in character primarily background materials, briefing papers for the Press Secretary intended to educate him so that he could explain and defend the administration's positions. The files cover many of the events and issues on which Ziegler had to give briefings and answer questions, in particular, the President's trips and meetings, the Vietnam peace negotiations, Watergate, and the President's finances.

Ronald Ziegler served throughout the Nixon administration, from January 1969 to August 1974, as Press Secretary to the President. He was the man in the vanguard of the White House's public relations apparatus who met every day, sometimes twice a day, with members of the press to hold briefings and to answer questions on issues of interest to the administration. In a memorandum to H. R. Haldeman on November 11, 1972, Ziegler described the Press Office as "a reactive operation geared to fast, spot responses and ferreting out positions and guidance for the morning briefings."

The Press Office staff in late 1972 consisted of approximately fifteen people divided between five offices: the personal staff of the Press Secretary; the Office of News Operations, headed by Gerald Warren; the Domestic Affairs Office, headed by Ken Clawson; the Foreign Policy Office, headed by Andrew Falkiewicz; and Correspondence Research, headed by Agnes Waldron. This arrangement had developed within the Press Office during the first Nixon administration. A White House Staff personnel list, dated September 11, 1969, suggests that at the administration's beginning, the organization was much less well formalized. Ziegler had the title "Special Assistant to the President" at this earlier time; Gerald Warren was the "Deputy Press Secretary," and the other significant aides were simply "Staff Assistants."

The functions of the Press Office often overlapped those of other White House offices and of the public information offices of departments and agencies. This was particularly true of Herbert Klein's Office of Communications. Klein, in his book Making It Perfectly Clear, described three key differences between his office and Ziegler's Press Office. First, his responsibility spread throughout the executive branch, and was not confined, like Ziegler's, to the White House. Second, television was his domain, insofar at least as concerned the appearances of members of the executive branch. Third, he was responsible for maintaining White House liaison with publishers and broadcasters; Ziegler's responsibilities, in contrast, were confined for the most part to relations with the White House press corps.

The distinctions between the Office of Communications and the Press Office became lost in a gradual evolution that in June 1973 resulted in Herbert Klein's resignation and Ronald Ziegler's succession as Assistant to the President, with augmented responsibilities. Besides retaining his duties as Press Secretary, Ziegler took over Klein's responsibilities and assumed as well an intimate advisory role to the President. The task of conducting daily press briefings passed to Deputy Press Secretary Gerald Warren. This structure lasted for the remainder of the administration.

As is true for many file groups in the Special Files, coverage is selective both in subject and time period.

J. Bruce Whelihan and Gerald Warren have file groups in the Staff Member and Office Files of the White House Special Files.

Series Description

Boxes:   1-18
Series:   Alphabetical Subject File | Folder Title List
Spans:   1969 - 1974
Description:   Memoranda, correspondence, notes, speeches and drafts of speeches, press releases, reports, news summaries, transcripts of news programs, background and briefing papers, real estate and tax records, schedules, telegrams, telegraphs, a mail action log, printed materials, and photographs. Subjects covered include the President's finances, Henry Kissinger's 1972 press briefings, the President's trips, Watergate, selected foreign policy issues, and Press Office operations.

Series:   Numerical Subject Files | Folder Title List
Spans:   1969 - 1973
Description:   Memoranda, correspondence, press releases, notes, reports, telegrams, wire service stories, clippings, and printed material. This series is concerned almost exclusively with domestic issues, and most of the material is from the period 1970-71. The Press Office apparently kept this file in a numerical scheme, and the numbers assigned are still carried on the folder titles. The numerical scheme itself has been abandoned, and arrangement is instead alphabetical by subject, and thereunder in reverse chronological order.

Boxes:   23-31
Series:   Numerical Subject File, Foreign Affairs and Defense | Folder Title List
Spans:   1969 - 1973
Description:   Memoranda, correspondence, notes, briefing papers, press releases, wire service stories, transcripts of television news programs, and clippings. The Vietnam War dominates the series, but other subjects covered included are foreign aid, the anti-ballistic missile system, chemical and biological warfare, the Middle East, and the Soviet Union. The arrangement is in accordance with a numerical scheme, devised by the Press Office; arrangement within folders is in reverse chronological order.

Boxes:   32-34

Boxes:   43-45
Series:   Foreign Policy Position Papers | Folder Title List
Spans:   1972 - 1973
Description:   The Foreign Policy Position Papers series includes primarily memoranda from Leslie A. Janka, an assistant to Henry Kissinger, providing guidance to Ronald Ziegler on responses to questions about the administration's foreign policy.

Description:   The Talking Points Memoranda series is composed primarily of memoranda intended for the President's use in preparing for meetings with members of his administration, heads of state and other representatives of foreign governments, members of Congress, representatives of state and local governments and private organizations, and individuals. Also included are drafts of proposed Presidential remarks, list of meeting participants, background memoranda, schedules, press releases, and clippings. Arrangement is chronological.

Boxes:   47-51
Series:   Press Office News Summaries | Folder Title List
Spans:   1973
