Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information


The Richard C. Holbrooke Papers contain Holbrooke's subject files, records of public statements, correspondence, writings and drafts of writings, articles and periodicals, and audiovisual materials.

Collection History

Custodial History:

While donated by Kati Marton, materials were directly received from George Packer. Holbrooke's papers were loaned to Packer for a period after Holbrooke's death. Packer utilized Holbrooke's materials to write "Our Man: Richard Holbrooke and the End of the American Century." Materials were transferred to the Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library in June, 2018 and January, 2019. Packer kept Holbrooke's filing cabinets intact, but arrangement of some material may reflect the organization of Packer's office.

Archival Appraisal Information:

Files that contain third-party personal information such as social security numbers have been separated from the papers. A few documents have been removed due to the presence of classified information. Removals are noted at the folder level.
