Office Files

Pres left us the contents of his office files. After I removed duplicate items and a few things that were better grouped with other similar items they occupied six full standard file boxes. They contain such things as copies of speeches, including many hand written drafts, trip reports, inter-office memos, various technical reports, copies of newspaper and magazine articles, photographs, and some of his personnel files. It's the sort of stuff that you would expect to find in an executives files. Unfortunately they don't make for much in the way of pretty pictures.
