The Organizations series includes materials related to Kennan's involvement in academic organizations, notably the Institute for Advanced Study and the Kennan Institute, as well as groups related to relations between the West and the East. Much of the material is concerned with the administration of these groups, including membership and appointment decisions, correspondence with members, meeting minutes, and fundraising materials, in addition to papers related to the projects and mission of the organizations. Also included are materials which document his work for the State Department, predominantly memoranda, correspondence, and reports he was involved in creating as head of the Policy Planning Staff and as a member of a taskforce on U.S. - U.S.S.R. relations, as well as a small amount of material related to his appointment as Ambassador to Yugoslavia (1961-1963).


Arranged alphabetically by organization and then alphabetically by document type or subject, with oversized at the end.
