His appointment books, diary highlights and memoranda reveal Bundy's involvement in policy decisions made by the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, especially concerning Vietnam.
A large portion of the collection relates to Bundy's 1998 book, A Tangled Web: The Making of Foreign Policy in the Nixon Presidency.
