LBJ Library CO 1-9  

July 1993







This list includes the principal files in the LBJ Library that contain material on Western Europe and NATO. The following countries have been included in this list: Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Portugal, San Marino, Spain, Switzerland, Trieste, and the Vatican. It is not definitive, however, and researchers should consult with an archivist about other potentially useful files. Those files listed below that are marked with two asterisks are unprocessed and are not currently available for research. For additional material on foreign economic policy involving Western Europe, see the Library's list entitled, "Foreign Economic Policy During the Johnson Presidency: Trade, Balance of Payments, and International Monetary Issues." There are also lists entitled, "Northern Europe" and "Pre-Presidential Materials on Western Europe and NATO."




This file was the working file of President Johnson's special assistants for national security affairs, McGeorge Bundy and Walt W. Rostow. Documents in the file originated in the offices of Bundy and Rostow and their staffs, in the various executive departments and agencies, especially those having to do with foreign affairs and national defense, and in diplomatic and military posts around the world.


More than half of the National Security File has been processed and opened for research. Consult the finding aid in the Reading Room or borrow a copy by mail by writing to the Supervisory Archivist, LBJ Library, 2313 Red River Street, Austin, Texas 78705. Those folders, listed in the finding aid, whose titles are preceded by an "X," an asterisk, or a date have been processed and their contents declassified in whole or in part. Lists of classified documents have been placed in those folders, and you may request mandatory review of individual documents which have not yet been declassified in full. Those folders not preceded by an "X," an asterisk, or a date are unprocessed and are not subject to mandatory declassification review. Consult with a member of the staff on the processing schedule.

NSF, National Security Council Histories. In 1968, the NSC staff prepared documentary histories of 21 international crises and events from the Johnson presidency. Compiled by xeroxing key documents in the National Security File and in other files, these collections are extremely useful. Moreover, they provide access to documents the originals of which, in some cases, are in unprocessed files. One NSC history deals with Western Europe and NATO:


"Trilateral Negotiations and NATO, 1966-1967" 50-51


Three NSC histories deal with U.S. foreign economic policy and Europe:

"Kennedy Round Crisis, April-June, 1967" 52

"Gold Crisis, November, 1967-March, 1968" 53

"1968 Balance of Payments Program" 54

"Non-Proliferation Treaty" 55-56


For additional material on U.S. foreign economic policy and Europe, see the Library's list entitled "Foreign Economic Policy During The Johnson Presidency: Trade, Balance of Payments, and International Monetary Issues."


NSF, Memos to the President.

The first forty-two boxes (through November 1968) have been opened for research, and significant portions have been declassified. Additional boxes are currently being processed.
