Category:Documents at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library and Museum/Gerald R. Ford Vice Presidential Papers, 1973-74/Box 65

This page organizes content from the John Marsh File of Vice Presidential Meetings with Foreign and Diplomatic Officials.

This is part of the Gerald R. Ford Vice Presidential Papers, 1973-74.



The Ford Vice Presidential Papers include materials created and received by Gerald R. Ford and his staff between October 13, 1973 and August 9, 1974. During the first two months Ford was still House Minority Leader, but his staff decided to begin the Vice Presidential file upon nomination rather than waiting until he was sworn in. Therefore the collection documents the last few weeks of Ford's Congressional career and his eight months as Vice President.

Content note[edit]

The collection includes material on Ford's congressional career and Vice Presidential confirmation; miscellaneous domestic and foreign policy issues; scheduling, travel and speeches; office organization; and constituent casework and public opinion mail. However, material on the Watergate affair and relations with the Nixon White House is scattered, and material on the Presidential transition is very limited.

QUANTITY 105.2 linear feet (ca. 210,400 pages)

DONOR Gerald R. Ford (accession numbers 77-42, 77-45, 77-55, 77-63, 77-107, 77-127, 77-134, 78-16, 78-73)
