Series 5, Public Relations, 1952-1961, has been arranged into four subseries: Correspondence, Press Releases, Radio Reports, and Clippings. This series chronicles the Fund's public relations difficulties and the steps it took to procure a better public image. The Fund was put on the defensive from the outset. Hutchins and Ferry, who were responsible for the Fund's early public relations program, lacked finesse in explaining the Fund's purpose. Their brusque manner alienated critics, further widening the chasm of misunderstanding.
No arrangement action taken or arrangement information not recorded at the time of processing.
