The Presidential historical materials of Lucy A. Winchester 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 (44 U.S.C. 2111 note) and implementing regulations. In accordance with the act and regulations, archivists reviewed the file group to identify personal and private materials (including materials outside the date span covered by the act) as well as nonhistorical items. These materials have been returned to the individual who has primary proprietary interest.

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 or NA Form 14021) 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 A Document Control Record marks the original position of the withdrawn item.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 Lucy A. Winchester file group documents the activities of the White House Social Secretary's office from 1969 through 1974. The Social Secretary and her staff were in charge of arranging and coordinating all social functions in the White House, whether or not the President or a member of the First Family actually participated in the event. This included the creation of guest lists, sending out and receiving invitations, scheduling entertainment and overseeing the general progress of the event. The Social Secretary worked in close coordination with numerous White House staff offices, including the domestic and security staffs, the President's and First Lady's appointments offices, military/social aides, military music groups and the Social Office. She also worked with ministers, entertainers, the State Department, and other government agencies.

The most important series are those concerned with the various "meals," both of an official and semi-private nature. Also important are the series dealing with Receptions, Holidays (especially Christmas), Worship Services (a Nixon innovation), and the entertainment oriented "Evenings at the White House." Most of these files contain background planning material, and many include guest lists, menus, and programs.

Related Staff Member and Office Files collections that should be consulted include the files of Gwendolyn B. King, Susan A. Porter, Helen M. Smith, the Social Office, the White House Social Files, and t he White House Central Files subject category "SO." Taped exit interviews with Constance C. Stuart, Penelope A. Adams, William R. Codus and notes from an interview with Coral F. Schmid will also prove informative. In addition, an oral history program is in progress which includes former members of the First Lady's staff.

The extensive photographic, film and video collection contained in the Nixon Presidential materials has much material documenting the activities of the First Lady. Also available are audio recordings of Mrs. Nixon and Constance Stuart, taped by the White House Communications Agency.
