NATIONAL SECURITY AFFAIRS, OFFICE OF THE ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT: CHRON FILE: Records, 1981-1989

 

The Chronological file of the National Security Advisor to the President was kept in a rough chronological format by NSC System I and System II case file numbers with some non-log items interspersed.

 

The National Security Council also maintained a System File within the National Security Council Executive Secretariat. This collection is also filed by System numbers. Both the Chron File and the System File often contain the same case file numbers. In most cases, one version of the case file is fuller than the other, including background material and memorandum. Please refer to the Executive Secretariat, National Security Council: System File for additional System case file material.
