Guide to Holdings

Overview

General Research Guides

  • Pre-Presidential materials are divided in ownership between the National Archives and the Richard Nixon Foundation.

    Significant collections owned by the National Archives for the Vice Presidential years include Correspondence (Series 320), Appearances (Series 207), and Trip Files.

    The Foundation collections contain materials documenting the personal lives of Richard and Pat Nixon, as well as his political career. Heavily used collections include those for Speeches (PPS 208), campaigns (1946, 1950, 1952, 1954, 1956, 1958, 1960, 1962, 1968), the Wilderness Years (1962-1968), the Cushman Files (PPS 320), and the Nixon Family Collection.

    Other materials are described under Materials Owned by the Richard Nixon Foundation: Pre-Presidential, found elsewhere in this Guide.

  • The Nixon Presidential Materials, seized under the Presidential Recordings and Materials Preservation Act of 1974 (PRMPA), constitute the largest portion of the Library's holdings. The complete textual and audiovisual materials are described elsewhere in this Guide, and are supplemented by Federal records series closely related to the Nixon administration, donated materials, and materials owned by the Richard Nixon Foundation.

    As described in the introduction to this Guide, the White House had a permanent organization to handle records management, known as White House Central Files (WHCF). The main source of materials will be found in the Subject Files and the Staff Member and Office Files (SMOF). The Alphabetical Name Files can also be a useful reference for finding cross-references to an individual or organization.

    If just starting your research, the WHCF: Subject Files is a useful collection to consult. Materials are arranged by subjects in alphabetical codes. By reviewing topics of interest, you can find out which staff members were working on an issue and learn the dates of key events and decisions. This can help you determine which SMOFs to consult.

    Textual materials most closely associated with President Nixon are found in the President's Personal File (including his speech notes) and the President's Office Files. The Presidential Daily Diary provides a detailed accounting of the President's activities. Chief of Staff H. R. Haldeman's SMOF includes handwritten notes from his meetings with the President. The H. R. Haldeman Diaries, including handwritten and audio diary entries from 1969 to 1973 are an additional insight to decisionmaking in the Nixon administration.

    PRMPA required National Archives archivists to review materials and to return to the President or staff members any which were outside the constitutional and statutory activities of the Presidency. This included documents which were purely personal or political in nature. In 2007, the Richard Nixon Foundation donated their returned documents to the National Archives, forming the Nixon Presidential Returned Materials Collection: White House Special Files, White House Central Files, and White House Special Files: Contested Materials.

    Other significant donated collections include over 150 oral histories and the Committee for the Re-election of the President Collection (of which the files of Jeb Stuart Magruder and Frederick Malek are available for research). The bulk of the materials described under Textual Materials Governed by Deed of Gift: General Donations were solicited from Nixon administration staff members during his Presidency, and donated at that time.

    The Nixon administration was richly documented through audiovisual resources. Highly used collections include the White House Tapes, the White House Photo Office Collection, White House Communications Agency Sound Recordings Collection, White House Communications Agency Video Collection, and the Naval Photographic Center White House Motion Film Unit Collection.

  • The bulk of the textual material related to national security is found in the following collections:

    However, significant documents can also be found in textual materials most closely associated with President Nixon: the President's Personal File (including his speech notes) and the President's Office Files. Chief of Staff H. R. Haldeman's SMOF includes handwritten notes from his meetings with the President. The H. R. Haldeman Diaries, including handwritten and audio diary entries from 1969 to 1973 are an additional insight to decisionmaking in the Nixon administration. The White House Tapes captured many conversations which touched on or were devoted to national security between February 1971 and July 1973.

    The White House Central Files: Subject Files also has a number of related subject categories, including CO (Countries), FO (Foreign Affairs), ND (National Security-Defense), SP (Speeches), and TR (Trips).

  • Almost all of the post-Presidential materials are owned by the Richard Nixon Foundation, are found in the Post-Presidential Collection, and are not yet available for research. Exceptions include correspondence with Presidents George H. W. Bush, Jimmy Carter, Gerald R. Ford, and Ronald Reagan; with Rev. Billy Graham and Senator Bob Dole; and the Frost-Nixon Interview Collection, which was donated to the National Archives.

  • These are frequently requested videos and motion film clips of landmark events in the life and public career of President Nixon.

    A Brief History of the White House Taping System

    In February 1971, the United States Secret Service, at the request of the President, installed listening devices in the White House. They placed seven microphones in the Oval Office: five in the President’s desk and one on each side of the fireplace. They placed two microphones in the Cabinet Room under the table near the President’s chair. The Secret Service technicians wired all devices to central mixers which were then connected to recorders in an old locker room in the White House basement.

    In April 1971, the Secret Service technicians installed four microphones in the President’s office in the Executive Office Building (EOB). These microphones were located in the President’s desk and wires led to a mixer and recorders in an adjoining room. The Secret Service also tapped the telephones in the Oval Office, in the President’s EOB office, and in the Lincoln Sitting Room. These telephone conversations were recorded by tapping the telephone lines from the White House switchboard and relaying the conversations to recorders in a closet in the basement of the residence.

    Finally, in May 1972, the Secret Service set up a taping system in the President’s study in Aspen Lodge at Camp David. There were three separate recording systems put in place. A single microphone recorded conversations taking place in the study. The President’s telephone on the President’s desk was tapped as was the telephone on the study table.

    This was a secret taping system maintained by the Secret Service. Only President Nixon, H. R. Haldeman, and a few of the President’s close personal assistants knew the system existed. One of its key features was that the recording equipment in the Oval Office, the EOB office, at Camp David, and on the telephones was sound activated, operating without a conscious decision by the President to record a specific conversation. Most participants were unaware that their conversations were being recorded. The system was tied to the Presidential Locator System and would only activate if the President were present in the room. It was designed to continue recording for fifteen to thirty seconds after the President left the room.

    The Cabinet Room recording system operated somewhat differently. It was a manual rather than a sound activated system. It was activated by a Special Assistant to the President who managed the President’s activities in the West Wing of the White House. The Special Assistant activated the system from a switch on his desk (although the Secret Service also placed on/off switches on either side of the President’s chair at the Cabinet Room table). When the Special Assistant inadvertently left the system “on,” the tape recorders captured non-historical conversations as well as hours of room noise.

    Processing the Tapes

    Each tape received a number by the Secret Service, and the collection is arranged into seven series by location including the White House Telephone, Cabinet Room, Camp David Study Table telephone, Camp David Study Desk telephone, Camp David Hard Wire, the Executive Office Building, and the Oval Office.

    The releases of the collection include a 1980 release of 12½ hours of audio and transcripts of those tapes played in court by the Watergate Special Prosecution Force. This release is called the Watergate Trial Tapes. Then, in 1991 the Library released 60 hours of tapes and transcripts subpoenaed and created by the Watergate Special Prosecution Force. Finally, the Library analyzed the entire tapes for the 10 abuses of powers identified by the Senate Select Committee, and released, in 1996, 205 hours of the Abuse of Governmental Powers conversations. The Library arranged a special declassification review of national security segments in the Abuse of Governmental Powers conversations, and released about an hour’s worth of segments in 1999.

    In general, these Watergate releases can be understood as superseded by the complete conversations releases.

    The Cabinet Room series was processed first, and then the Library processed the remaining room series in chronological blocks called “chrons” that had been designated in the 1996 Tapes Settlement Agreement.

    President's Advisory Council on Executive Organization

    The President’s Advisory Council on Executive Organization (PACEO) was appointed by the President on April 15, 1969. Its mission was to conduct a review of the organization of the executive branch and to recommend changes which would alleviate problems arising from overlapping jurisdictions and improve the effectiveness of the Government departments in carrying out the administration’s domestic programs. The Council’s first five members, also appointed on April 5, 1969, were the Chairman Roy L. Ash, John B. Connally, Frederick R. Kappel, Richard M. Paget, and George Baker; they were later joined by Walter Thayer, appointed June 2, 1969, who also held the post of Special Consultant to the President with the responsibility to assist in establishing the Council. Murray Comarow was the Council’s first executive director, and Andrew Rouse his deputy and later successor. The Council first convened on April 10, 1969. It met formally one or two full days a month, conducted 1,500 interviews, met with the President five times, and prepared for him fourteen memoranda between July 19, 1969, and November 19, 1970. Despite discussion among administration members that the Council should prepare and perhaps publish a “Final Report,” such a report was apparently never in fact prepared. President Nixon accepted the resignation of the Council on May 7, 1971.

    President's Advisory Panel on Timber and the Environment

    The President’s Advisory Panel on Timber and the Environment was established by President Nixon on September 2, 1971. The creation of the Panel stemmed from the June 1970 report Cabinet Committee on Economic Policy’s Task Force on Softwood Lumber and Plywood, which recommended that a panel of outstanding citizens be appointed to study a range of timber management issues in order to ensure an adequate national supply of softwood timber products. The Panel advised the President on maintaining an adequate timber supply and, at the same time, protecting and enhancing the quality of the environment. The Panel also made recommendations on the desirable level of timber harvest on Federal lands, methods of insuring environmental quality, alternative forest management programs, citizen involvement in forestry programs, procedures for timber sales, and ways to increase timber productivity on private lands. The Panel consisted of five members appointed by the President. It terminated in June 1973 after the submission of its final report.

    President's Office Files

    The President’s Office Files consists of materials drawn together by the Special Files Unit from several administrative subdivisions within the White House Office. President Nixon’s chiefs of staff, H. R. Haldeman (1969-1973) and Alexander M. Haig (1973-1974), were in charge of the overall operation of the White House Office. Alexander P. Butterfield, as Deputy Assistant to the President, was responsible for the final review of all memoranda and reports going to the President and for handling and marking the material seen by him. Stephen B. Bull assumed these duties in 1973. The bulk of the papers retrieved from the President’s outbox were sent to the Central Files or to Henry A. Kissinger for the National Security Council Files. However, materials containing the President’s handwriting or of a particularly sensitive nature were sent by Butterfield to the Staff Secretary’s Office for disposition and storage. It is the handwriting and sensitive papers sent to the Staff Secretary that now comprise much of the President’s Office Files.

    President's Personal File

    The President’s Personal File is essentially a President’s secretary’s file, kept by Rose Mary Woods, personal secretary to the President, for two purposes: (1) preserving for posterity a collection of documents particularly close to the President, whether because he dictated or annotated them, or because of the importance of the correspondent or the event concerned and (2) giving appropriate attention—letters of gratitude, invitations to White House social events, and the like—to members and important friends and supporters of the Nixon administration. This generalization does not describe all the varied materials of a file group which is essentially a miscellany, but it does identify the reason for the existence of the file group’s core.

    Special Staff Files

    It was the intention of the Special Files Unit that each senior White House staff member would send sensitive materials to Special Files for storage and exclusive retrieval by the staff member. In practice, however, Special Files did not receive sensitive materials from many top staff members. When staff members did resign their appointment or left the White House staff, the Special Files Unit received all their files and reviewed them for items that met the specified criteria for sensitivity and inclusion in Special Files. All nonsensitive materials were subsequently forwarded to the White House Central Files for general storage. If the Special Files Unit did not receive a large quantity of sensitive materials from a particular staff member, but only a few folders, these folders were placed in the file group known as Special Staff Files.

    The White House Gift Unit was established during the Eisenhower administration to deal with the increasing number of items presented to the Chief Executive and his family by foreign officials and U.S. citizens. Under the direction of Lucy Ferguson (1969-1972) and Marge Wicklein (1973-1974), the White House Gift Unit during the Nixon years grew in size and responsibility.

    The Unit’s primary task continued to be the documenting of gifts or gift-like items presented to the First Family. These items were received by the Unit in one of several ways: directly from the White House Mail Room as they arrived and were unpacked; from the Congressional Liaison Office and members of the White House staff who accepted them on behalf of the President; from the Office of Protocol in the Department of State; and from the First Family.

Textual Materials Governed by Federal Statute

  • The National Security Council (NSC) was established by the National Security Act of July 1947 (PL 235-61 Statute 496; U.S.C. 402). President Harry S. Truman created the Council in order to advise and assist the President on national security and foreign policies and to coordinate these policies among various government agencies.

    This legislation also provided for the creation of the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Resources Board, a National Military Establishment, and a Secretary of Defense.

    The structure and function of the NSC changed with each administration. The needs and desires of the President and his relationships with his advisors and department heads all had an effect on the role of the NSC in policy and decision making. Unlike his predecessors, President Nixon relied heavily on his National Security Adviser, Henry A. Kissinger, and the NSC for guidance on foreign policy decisions throughout the administration.

    Includes the following reports:

    Task Force on U.S. Balance of Payment Policies
    Chairman: Dr. Gottfried Haberler. The Task Force on U.S. Balance of Payment Policies was charged with evaluating the balance of payment position and policies of the United States. It concluded that the nation’s trade accounts were in a serious state of deterioration and were being camouflaged by a combination of “window-dressing” transactions and an abnormal inflow of foreign capital. The Task Force made several recommendations to reverse the trend.

    Task Force on Budget Policy
    Chairman: Dr. Herbert Stein. The Task Force on Budget Policy was responsible for analyzing the fiscal policies of previous administrations and making recommendations for the budget policy of the incoming Nixon administration. In a series of reports, this Task Force helped develop a fiscal policy for the new administration and encouraged President-Elect Nixon to institute budget controls by reducing or restraining the expenditures to which he assigned a low priority.

    The Presidency and Policy Formulation: The Task Force Device
    “The Presidency and Policy Formulation: The Task Force Device” is a research paper written by Norman C. Thomas and Harold L. Welman on the use of White House task forces as a formal means of policy formulation. The paper examines a set of significant changes that had occurred in the process of formulating Presidential legislative programs in domestic policy. In analyzing those changes, the researchers focus on the areas of education and housing.

    Task Force on Organization of the Executive Branch
    Chairman: Franklin A. Lindsay. The purpose of the Task Force on Organization of the Executive Branch was to identify a limited number of actions that might be taken in the early days of the new Nixon administration to reorganize the executive branch of the Federal Government with the consent of Congress and without significant danger of weakening Amendments to the Constitution of the United States. The Task Force also outlined a long term program for achieving effective reorganization of the executive branch in an effort to preserve President Nixon’s initiatives and provide him with the most flexibility in his decision making.

    Task Force on Education
    Chairman: Alan Pifer. The Task Force on Education argued that the then rapid expansion of the Federal Government into matters of education was a substantial responsibility of the Federal Government under the “general welfare” clause of the Constitution. The members of this Task Force made a variety of proposals for enlarging Federal expenditures on educational programs, including a separate Department of Education headed by an officer of Secretary rank, the creation of a National Council of Educational Advisors and the regrouping of a number of categorical grant programs into “designated block grant programs.”

    Task Force on Federal Credit Programs
    Chairman: James O’Leary. The purpose of the report generated by the Task Force on Federal Credit Programs was to set forth broad principles that would guide the Federal credit programs. The Task Force of Federal Credit Programs analyzed the economic climate of the time, established general principles to guide Federal credit programs and made recommendations that would have brought existing and new Federal credit programs into line with the guiding principles the Task Force had established.

    Task Force on Resources and Environment
    Chairman: Russell E. Train. The report by the Task Force on Resources and Environment concentrates on a study of the environment rather than resources. A supplemental report was submitted that addressed issues such as minerals, energy policy, and other resource matters. This particular report recommended that the new administration improve environmental management, particularly in urban areas. The Task Force recommended the establishment of a National Commission on Environment to examine and recommend structural changes aimed at providing more effective monitoring of the major environmental impacts of Federal programs that did not protect the environment.

    Task Force on Health
    Chairman: John T. Dunlop. The report by this Task Force highlighted the rapid expansion in health expenditures accompanied by sharp cost increases. It concluded that additional funding would only increase costs further rather than expanding the number of services offered. The Task Force recommended the new administration place heavy emphasis on greater efficiency and productivity in health care through a variety of means. The report includes recommendations in the following areas: Medicaid, Medicare, the Poor, Organization and Administration, Medical Manpower and Education, Licensing, Medical Education, Capital, Research and Demonstration, and Longer-range Special Problems.

    Task Force on Housing and Urban Renewal
    Chairman: James W. Gaynor. The Task Force on Housing and Urban Renewal produced a report containing its recommendations for achieving a meaningful community improvement program for the country. The recommendations are divided into two categories. The first category, Part I, is comprised of recommendations of a general nature that required policy decisions made at the White House level. The second category, Part II, pertains to the responsibilities of the incoming Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

    Task Force on Improving Prospects of Small Business
    Chairman: J. Wilson Newman. The Task Force on Improving Prospects of Small Business was charged with reviewing the status of small business in general, and to recommend how to enhance its prospects. The Task Force was also charged with appraising the effectiveness of then current programs and policies designed to aid small business, make suggestions on how to improve the programs and policies, and to determine what actions might be taken to expand the role for small business with the nation’s economy.

    Task Force on Labor, Incomes and Manpower Policies
    Chairman: George P. Shultz. The report generated by this Task Force presented recommendations in three areas: labor relations policy, wage-price policy, and manpower policy. This report makes note of two basic convictions underlying the recommendations in all three areas covered in the report. These convictions are: 1) high employment is an important goal in itself, but is in tension with the goal of reasonable price stability; and 2) unions and companies themselves must be made responsible for making particular decisions free of government intervention and accepting the consequences.

    Task Force on Urban Affairs
    Chairman: Edward C. Banfield. The report by this Task Force concentrates on the problem of giving African-Americans and the poor a sense of increasing hope and opportunity and of greater control in their lives. The report stresses the importance of avoiding promises which cannot be fulfilled. It suggests that the new administration give the public a more balanced view of urban areas by stressing urban successes as well as urban failures. The following are the areas the Task Force analyzed and made recommendations concerning: Equal Access; Income Distribution; Manpower and Employment; Housing; Transportation; Schools; Safety in Public Places; Organization; and Evaluation and Testing.

    Task Force on Public Welfare
    Chairman: Richard P. Nathan. The report by this Task Force focuses on near-term issues and opportunities faced by the new administration in the area of public welfare. In the report, public welfare was broadly defined to encompass problems and conditions of the poor in the United States and the government programs designed to assist them. The near-term issues and opportunities identified by the Task Force are: A) Public Assistance and Related Support Systems; B) Organization at the Federal Level of Service Programs for the Poor; C) The Community Action Program: Its Role at the Local Level; D) The Model Cities Program; E) The Community Self-Determination Act; and Other Areas for Early Action.

    Task Force on Intergovernmental Fiscal Relations
    Chairman: Richard P. Nathan. The Task Force on Inter-governmental Fiscal Relations encouraged the new administration to implement basic reforms in the inter-governmental policies and programs of the Federal Government. The central premise of the report was that: 1) state-local public service needs are high and rising; 2) State-local tax systems are strained and their major tax sources have inequitable features; 3) The use of the Federal tax system to aid state and local governments was essential; 4) The then Federal aid system had critical deficiencies; and 5) The administrative machinery for achieving domestic public purposes needs strengthening at every level – Federal, state, and local. Part II of the report presents a framework of principles for inter-governmental reform while Part III presents specific proposals to accomplish this objective. The Task Force also made a recommendation to strengthen the Executive Office of the President to provide leadership in the field of inter-governmental affairs. Other sections of the report discuss broad functional areas in which new inter-governmental policies are required.

    Task Force on Space
    Chairman: Charles Townes. This Task Force examined the state of space work by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the Department of Defense and made recommendations for financial and legislative support for continued work during the tenure of the new administration. Some of the issues analyzed in this report include: a synopsis of the development and status of space work; a summary of issues and conclusions; a general budgetary discussion; and examination issues such as competition with the U.S.S.R., objectives and scope of Manned Program, lunar exploration, planetary exploration, use of spacecraft and associated techniques for civil or commercial benefit, the significance of the national space program to national security, and legislative issues.

    Task Force on Inflation
    Chairman: David Meiselman. The report of the Task Force on Inflation analyzed the principle sources of inflation during the late 1960s. It recommended appropriate tools and techniques that might have brought inflation under control and the compatibility (or lack of compatibility) of moderating inflation with other goals such as high employment and balance of payments equilibrium. The report recommends a six month plan of action for the new administration that was to take effect soon after new President took office. In addition to the six month action plan, the report offers considerations for a study of inflation related issues and a longer-term policy for controlling inflation.

    Task Force on Transportation
    Chairman: C. L. Miller. The report generated by the Task Force on Transportation identified several urgent problems in public transportation. The problems identified in this report include: a lack of guaranteed funding and support for public mass transportation; an air transportation system that was facing a national crisis of insufficient capacity; the controversy surrounding the Federal-aid Highway Program; the outmoded regulations governing the railroad industry; the need for the maritime industry to take advantage of technological advancements; and the lack of science and technology programs in transportation. The Task Force urged the President-Elect to attack the problems of the transportation industry vigorously. The report recommended that the new administration strengthen the Office of the Secretary of Transportation and give it the full support of the Office of the President. And finally, the Task Force urged the President-Elect to take a fresh and objective look at the role of private enterprise in transportation.

    Task Force Summaries
    Program Coordination Committee Chair: Dr. Arthur F. Burns. This folder contains the summaries of eleven of the seventeen Task Force reports. These eleven summaries were forward to President-Elect Nixon by Arthur F. Burns on January 18, 1969. The Task Force summaries included in this folder are: Intergovernmental Fiscal Relations, Federal Credit Program, Resources and Environment, Transportation, Labor, Incomes, and Manpower, Education, Urban Affairs, Housing and Urban Renewal, Health, Public Welfare, and U. S. Balance of Payments Policies. The remaining Task Force reports apparently were not summarized. The full reports of the other six Task Forces were forwarded to the President-Elect because Burns believed these reports to be most important and therefore should not be summarized, but read in their entirety.

  • The National Currency Act (12 Stat. 665), February 25, 1863, created a national currency and extended sanctions against counterfeiting. The Secret Service Division (SSD) was established within the Office of the Solicitor of the Treasury in July 1865 with primary responsibility for combating counterfeiting, forging, and the altering of currency and securities.

    Establishment of the various agencies of the Economic Stabilization Program was based on the Economic Stabilization Act of 1970 (84 Stat. 799). This Act was amended and extended several times.

    The Economic Stabilization Program went through four phases. The first phase, a 90-day freeze on prices and wages established by Executive Order 11615, began August 15, 1971. Primary operational responsibility for the freeze was assigned to the Office of Emergency Preparedness.

    Phase II began November 14, 1971. Its legal foundation was Executive Order 11627. The Cost of Living Council was given responsibility for establishing the overall goals of the Program, for developing policy recommendations for the President, for directing compliance and enforcement activities, and for coordinating and supervising all aspects of the Program. The Price Commission was established and given responsibility for stabilizing prices and rents. The Pay Board was established and given responsibility for limiting wage increases.

    Phase III of the program began January 11, 1973. Its legal foundation was Executive Order 11695. The Price Commission and Pay Board were abolished, and the relatively stringent controls of Phase II were exchanged for largely voluntary controls—the wage and price control system under Phase III was essentially self-administered.

    Rising inflation in the early months of 1973 led to Executive Order 11723 and the establishment of a second freeze, this time on prices only, that began June 13, 1973, and lasted until August 12, 1973.

    Phase IV began August 13, 1973. Its legal foundation was Executive Order 11730. Although an early feature of Phase IV was a return to the tighter standards and compliance procedures of Phase II, the controls still depended, to a large degree, on voluntary compliance. The administration saw Phase IV as the vehicle for bringing about an orderly disengagement from all controls.

    The process of decontrol continued until the termination of activity for all Program agencies, July 1, 1974.

    Subseries A: 1953 Trip to Asia and Far East
    1953-1954     |     13 ft., 8 in.     |     Open
    On October 5, 1953, the Vice President and Mrs. Nixon departed on a goodwill visit to the Far East and Southern Asia. The trip was also intended to provide Nixon with a look at Indochina. Stops included New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, Malaya, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, South Korea, Japan, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Burma, India, Pakistan, Iran, and Libya. The Nixons returned to Washington, DC, on December 14, 1953.

    At the time, the trip was the most extensive ever undertaken by an elected American official. Some of the highlights were a tour of French Union front line troops in Vietnam's Red River delta, remarks made in Formosa in reaction to John Foster Dulles’s statement that the United States did not necessarily “forever oppose” recognition of the People’s Republic of China, and discussions with such leaders as Shah Reza Pahlavi of Iran, Republic of China Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek, Indian Prime Minister Nehru, Australian Prime Minister Sir Robert Menzies, and President Sukarno of Indonesia.

The Nixons returned to Washington on March 5, 1955.

    During the course of the trip Nixon urged earliest possible completion of the Inter-American Highway from Texas to the Panama Canal, defended the work of the United States Information Agency, and expressed concern over any economic difficulties a recent drop in coffee prices might have brought to the Western Hemisphere’s coffee producing countries. He also received assurances from Costa Rican President Figueres and Nicaraguan President Somoza that they would try to resolve their seven-year dispute concerning the border shared by the two countries.

    The trip included discussions with heads of state Batista of Cuba, Cortines of Mexico, and Armas of Guatemala.

    Mr. Nixon represented the United States at ceremonies celebrating the tenth anniversary of Philippine independence and the second anniversary of the inauguration of South Vietnam’s President Diem. Highlights of the trip included a July 4 Manila speech in which Nixon described neutralist policy toward Communism as a “fearful risk” and a July 6 speech in South Vietnam in which Nixon assured the audience that they had the support of the American people in their fight “to make their young republic strong and safe from communist encroachment.” The trip included discussions with Chinese Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek, President Mirza of Pakistan, Spanish Foreign Minister Artajo, and Thai Premier Songgram.

    Soviet repression of the Hungarian revolt in October 1956 caused many Hungarians to flee to Austria where they were granted asylum. On December 18, 1956, Vice President Nixon set out on a trip to Vienna and the refugee camps to study the problem of bringing more Hungarian refugees to the United States. Nixon’s party included Deputy Attorney General William P. Rogers, U.S. Ambassador Llewellyn Thompson, and Congressman Robert Wilson of San Diego. Stops along the way included Vienna, Austria; Salzburg, Austria; Munich, Germany; and Keflovik, Iceland. The Vice President returned to Washington on December 24, 1956.

    Along with its passengers, the Vice President’s plane also carried 1,600 pounds of insulin for use in Austria and Hungary and several thousand dollars in contributions from volunteer agencies in the United States. Upon arrival, Nixon presented letters from President Eisenhower to Austrian Chancellor Raab and President Koerner, praising Austria’s care of the refugees. In the course of his visit Nixon toured several refugee camps and a processing center and paid a visit to the Hungarian border where he watched refugees pass across into Austria.

    On April 27, 1958, the Vice President and Mrs. Nixon began a goodwill visit to South America. Countries visited were Uruguay, Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, and Venezuela. The primary focus of the trip was to be upon the May inauguration of Argentine President-Elect Arturo Frondize. However, this event was overshadowed by the hostile demonstrations encountered by the Nixon party in Lima on May 7 and 8 and in Caracas on May 13. President Eisenhower ordered a precautionary movement of U.S. forces into Caribbean bases in view of the virulence of the demonstrations in Venezuela. The President headed a welcome crowd of 15,000, which greeted the return of the Vice Presidential party on May 15.

    On July 22, 1959, an official party of 35 persons, including the Vice President, Mrs. Nixon, Dr. Milton S. Eisenhower, and Vice Admiral Hyman G. Rickover departed on a trip to the U.S.S.R. and Poland. The primary purpose of the visit was to formally open the U.S. national exhibition at the Moscow Trade Fair. It was during a tour of the model kitchen displayed in this exhibit that Nixon and Premier Khrushchev engaged in what later became known as the “Kitchen Debate.” During the course of his stay in the Soviet Union, Nixon had several opportunities to discuss issues concerning Soviet-U.S. relations with Khrushchev. The tour included visits to four Siberian cities, two of which had been off limits to any visiting American official, and a two-day stop in Warsaw.

  • In late 1970, members of the Nixon administration’s White House staff began planning for President Nixon’s reelection campaign. Accordingly, in the spring of 1971, Attorney General John Mitchell, who had managed the 1968 Nixon campaign, was tapped to serve as campaign director and the nucleus of the campaign staff opened offices at 1701 Pennsylvania Avenue NW. Originally called the Citizens Committee to Re-Elect the President, the organization, then headed by acting director Jeb Magruder (who became deputy campaign director when Mitchell resigned from the Justice Department to take up his political duties full-time in 1972), began planning to run a national campaign independently of the Republican National Committee.

    The White House and the Citizens Committee decided to keep the fundraising and financial operations of the reelection effort separate from the rest of the campaign apparatus. Francis Dale was named campaign chairman with a committee of eight co-chairmen, Maurice Stans became the finance chairman, and John Mitchell formally inhabited the campaign director position in April 1972. Under Mitchell, the committee (renamed the Committee for the Re-election of the President) was split into three divisions: Administration, Citizens and Political.

    The Administration division of the committee consisted of the advance/tour office, the attack division, the counsel for the committee, polling and scheduling. It also incorporated an in-house advertising agency called the November Group (as opposed to hiring an outside company as had been the practice of campaigns) and the convention planning office. The citizens groups focused on voter blocs such as Labor, Ethnic, Business, Veterans, and Spanish. Each group had a division leader. The political division was split into regions with each region assigned to one political leader.

    On June 17, 1972, five men, including James McCord, the committee’s head of security, were arrested while breaking into the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate Office Complex in Washington, DC. Upon hearing of the break-in, members of the committee staff proceeded to destroy records relating to the burglars’s activities from the committee offices.

    As a result of the break-in and subsequent publicity, Mitchell resigned as campaign director on June 31, 1972. Former Congressman Clark MacGregor replaced Mitchell. Jeb Magruder retained the rank of deputy campaign director but White House personnel chief Fred Malek officially joined as a second deputy campaign director. Malek’s ascension prompted a reorganization of the committee, with Magruder remaining in charge of Administration and Malek assuming command of the Citizens and Political divisions.
