DISASTERS

 

(DI)

 

Administration action on disasters occurring in the United States and foreign countries during the Johnson Presidential years is reflected in this collection of materials.  It includes memoranda and correspondence between the White House and such agencies and individuals as the Office of Emergency Planning, the Bureau of the Budget, the Departments of Agriculture and the Interior, the Small Business Administration, State Governors, members of Congress and various people concerned with specific disasters.  These papers link the chain of events leading up to the declaration of a major disaster area, time extensions and request denials and shows aid furnished in the form of services, gifts and loans, as well as condolences.  (5'10" processed.)

 

Other material of possible interest may be found in IS 3 (Disaster Insurance) and CA 1 (Plane Disaster).

 

The term "case file" used throughout this listing refers to a detailed, assembled and subdivided set of papers on a specific disaster.  It reflects the history and federal handling in each case and ordinarily contains the initial news of the disaster, continuing details, proposals from the Office of Emergency Planning, Governor's request, press release, Congressional representation, State request and the official letter showing the final decision on the declaration of a major disaster area.
