Records of Groups, 1918-2005
Collection Description & Creator Information
The Studies Department Series documents the planning and execution of the various study groups (including discussion groups, current issue review groups, seminars, workshops and conferences) and projects. Documents in this series reflect the administration of the Studies Department (mainly through correspondence and subject files), the records of the groups themselves (through correspondence, background papers, meeting minutes and final reports), and the subject files and correspondence of major players in the Council's Studies Department from the 1940s onward.
The Records of Groups are arranged into three sections: Volumes, Post-1973 Study Groups, and Projects. Each of these categories is arranged chronologically by first meeting date. Due to the complicated nature of some of the Project records (broad topics, multiple leaders and sections, extended timeline, largess of records), such as the War and Peace Studies, the 1980s Project, and the European American Project, we have maintained the order in which these files were received to preserve context.
