LG (Local Governments) (White House Central Files: Subject Files)

Date Start
Date End
Scope and Content Note

The subject category is composed of correspondence, messages, invitations, memoranda, cross references, notes, petitions, press releases, cables, wires, printed material and newspaper clippings concerning local governments and intergovernmental relations. Major correspondents include Daniel P. Moynihan, Kenneth R. Cole, Jr., Dwight L. Chapin, John D. Ehrlichman, H. R. Haldeman, Stephen H. Hess, John R. Price, Edward L. Morgan, Hugh W. Sloan, Jr., Edwin L. Harper, Egil Krogh, Jr., Peter M. Flanigan, David N. Parker, Michael B. Smith, James H. Falk, Dana G. Mead, Tod R. Hullin, William E. Timmons, John C. Campbell, Roland L. Elliott, John C. Whitaker, John R. Brown III, Chester E. Finn, Jr., Hugh W. Sloan, Jr., 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; States-Territories (ST), Political Affairs (PL), Messages (ME), Public Relations (PR), and Federal Aid (FA). 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.


Topics covered include Daniel P. Moynihan's "Toward a National Urban Policy"; the Council for Urban Affairs; Federal urban policy; the President's meetings with mayors; revenue sharing; the National League of Cities; the model cities program; urban research, the Administration's domestic priorities; the New Federalism; new communities/towns; State Councils for Urban Affairs; urban growth policy; the U.S. Conference of Mayors; county governments; welfare reform; special revenue sharing; the Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations; the planned variations cities program; Federal grant programs for cities; community development; housing legislation; import aid; public employment programs; the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973; school busing; Los Angeles earthquake damage; the New York City welfare situation; bicentennial celebration plans in Philadelphia; the Legacy of Parks program; invitations to the President to appear at various events; and Presidential messages of support and congratulations to city officials. Arrangement is, first, chronological, and then, in a local jurisdiction subcategory, alphabetical according to name of local jurisdiction. In this subcategory, Executive files documents falling under each letter of the alphabet are filed first, then General files documents--for example, Executive/Abbeyville to Avoca is filed first, then General/Abbeyville to Avoca, and so on.
