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).
