ELMETS, DOUG:  Files, 1982-1984

 

Media Relations, Office of: Staff Assistant

 

The Office of Media Relations handled all press contacts with the White House other than the actual White House press corps.  It was created in the fall of 1981 from the Office of Media Liaison in the Press Office and the Television Office from the Office of Communication. The office had various names throughout the administration including: Media Liaison; Office of Media Relations and Planning; Office of Media Relations and Broadcasting; Office of Media and Broadcasting Relations).  Their staff, physical location in the White House and general functions remained exactly the same during these various name changes. For ease of use and to reflect their organizational unity the Library is naming this office: Office of Media Relations. 

 

This collection has a preliminary arrangement.  It has been arranged in seven series consisting of: Series I - Subject File; Series II – Calendars, April 1983-January 1984; Series III – Briefings; Series IV – Interviews; Series V - Press Conferences; Series VI – Events; Series VII- Trips.
