Descriptive Entry
Descriptive Entry
The records are arranged in four alphabetic series, in the order in which they were received from the originating office. The series overlap in chronology and subject matter and are probably just segments of one general alphabetic subject file that was haphazardly weeded and separated as parts of the file became non-current.
Much of the pre-1968 material included in the records is material which Mr. Warner brought with him from his previous assignment as Assistant to the Secretary for International Activities. Others are files (mainly those relating to the Anacostia Neighborhood Museum) of Charles Blitzer (as Assistant Secretary for History and Art and as Director of Education and Training) which were transferred to Mr. Warner's office as responsibility for the Anacostia program was shifted.
