Collection Description & Creator Information
The Paul A. Volcker Papers primarily consist of Volcker's subject files, mostly created during his terms as president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York or as chairman of the Federal Reserve, and his correspondence with a variety of individuals. Much of Volcker's Federal Reserve correspondence is in reply to private citizens, though letters to and from White House staff and members of Congress also constitute a large portion of the collection. The collection also documents the meetings of the Federal Open Market Committee under Volcker's chairmanship of the Federal Reserve, the activities of the Independent Committee of Eminent Persons (also known as the Volcker Commission), and Volcker's relationship to the Rockefeller Foundation as the Federal Reserve Bank of New York president. The collection also includes Volcker's phone logs from his term as undersecretary of the Treasury.
