Series 2, Administration Records, 1952-1978, is divided into four subseries: New York Office Records, AID/USIA, Country Files and Trip Reports. This series provides the most information on Franklin's operations but at the same time is quite frustrating due to numerous gaps and an inconsistent filing system. Ironically, an overzealous cross-reference system resulted in redundant files with copies of items filed in various places. Files were consolidated and duplicate items removed as part of this processing project.


No arrangement action taken or arrangement information not recorded at the time of processing.
