The President historical materials of Tom C. Korologos, a Deputy Assistant to the President, are in the custody of the National Archives and Records Administration under the provisions of Title I of the Presidential Recording 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 file group to identify personal and private materials or nonhistorical items. These items have been returned to Korologos.

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 A Document Control Record marks the original position of the withdrawn item.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 materials of Tom Korologos are dated March-August 1974. During this time, Korologos served as Deputy Assistant to the President for Legislative Affairs, working for William E. Timmons, head of the White House Congresssional Relations Office. This office maintained contact with members of Congress, presented the merits of administration sponsored legislation, coordinated legislative proposals among various departments and agencies of the executive branch, gathered information and kept a current progress report on major pending legislation, and informed the President of Congressional sentiment o specific legislative issues.

The Korologos files consist largely of hand-written notes on routine contacts with Congressmen and Senators, vote tally sheets and pending legislation, and scheduling documents for meeting between Congressional and White House officials.

With some variations the folders in this file are labeled: Slush (month, year). The term "slush" appears to have been used to identify miscellaneous materials.
