Collection History

Custodial History

The records were selected by Philip A. Crowl, a representative of Princeton and later a U.S. State Department employee. Crowl relied initially on Secretary Dulles's selection of subjects to be filmed, but later he based his choice on his own knowledge of events at State. Filming was conducted between 1956 and 1961.

Access & Use

Conditions Governing Access

Open portions of this reel are available online in Series 2.

Other portions of this microfilm reel have been downgraded to the "secret level." Persons wishing to use the reel should write to the Library for an SF-86 (Questionnaire for Sensitive Positions) and fingerprint cards in order to obtain a security clearance. Once cleared (approx. 4-6 months), individuals may examine the film and make copies which will be sent to State for declassification decisions (another two to six months). One may also take notes, but these must be classified and sent to State, which cautions that such notes may be difficult to declassify. Once declassified, the records will be sent to the researcher.

Conditions Governing Use

Single photocopies may be made for research purposes. For quotations that are fair use as defined under U. S. Copyright Law, no permission to cite or publish is required. For those few instances beyond fair use, researchers are responsible for determining who may hold the copyright and obtaining approval from them. Researchers do not need anything further from the Mudd Library to move forward with their use.

Physical Characteristics and Technical Requirements

For preservation reasons, original analog and digital media may not be read or played back in the reading room. Users may visually inspect physical media but may not remove it from its enclosure. All analog audiovisual media must be digitized to preservation-quality standards prior to use. Audiovisual digitization requests are processed by an approved third-party vendor. Please note, the transfer time required can be as little as several weeks to as long as several months and there may be financial costs associated with the process. Requests should be directed through the Ask Us Form.
