The Presidential historical materials of Andre Buckles are in the custody of the National Archives and Records Administration under the provisions of Title I of the Presidential Recordings and Materials Act of 1974 (44 U.S.C. 2111 note) and implementing regulations. In accordance with the act and regulations, archivists reviewed this file group to identify personal and private materials (including materials outside the date span covered by the act) as well as nonhistorical items. Such items have been withdrawn for return to the individual who has primary proprietary or commemorative interest in them.

Materials covered by the act have been archivally processed and are described in this register. Items that are security classified or otherwise restricted under the act and regulations have been removed and placed in a closed file. A Document Withdrawal Record (NA Form 14021) marks the original position of the withdrawn items. 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 reviewed for declassification 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 Andre Buckles file group documents the activities of the Nixon Administration's Domestic Council. In the summer of 1974, Mr. Buckles succeeded Dana Mead as White House Liaison for District of Columbia Affairs. Mr. Mead left the Domestic Council to teach at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

Buckles was born in Louisville, Kentucky in 1942, and grew up in Columbus, Ohio. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Denison University he graduated with a law degree from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. He worked in the Office of the General Counsel of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. In 1972, he was on the staff of the Ohio Committee to Re-Elect the President. He also served as Assistant General Counsel for the U.S. Information Agency.

These files reflect White House concern with improving various aspects of the District of Columbia. These include improvements such as the Mall, Metro system construction, new highways and bridges, housing projects, and plans for the 1976 Bicentennial celebrations.

The materials also include information on the District of Columbia City Council, the Office of the Mayor, and Home Rule. Principal correspondents are John Ehrlichman, Egil Krogh, Jr., Dana Mead, Sallyanne Payton, D.C. Mayor Walter Washington, and members of the D.C. City Council.

Memoranda, reports, correspondence, and statements comprise the collection. Also included are maps, newspaper clippings, and plans for various projects.

The file folders in this collection are arranged alphabetically with D.C. preceding each folder title that pertains to the District of Columbia. The last three boxes (27, 28, and 29) consist of bound reports and publications which were found in the Andre Buckles collection. These were not materials generated by this office, but are included in order to maintain the archival provenance. Two other publications, which were too large to include with the rest of the materials, are included as oversized attachments.
