White House Central Files: President's Personal File

Dates: 1945-53

ADMINISTRATIVE INFORMATION

Size: 335 linear feet.
Access: Open.
Copyright: President Truman donated his copyright interest in any of his writings in this collection to the people of the United States. In addition, documents prepared by United States Government employees in the course of their official duties are also in the public domain. Copyright interest in documents which do not fall in these two categories is presumed to remain with the writers of the documents.

COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

The President’s Personal File (PPF) is one of the four principal series within the White House Central Files, the other three being the Official File, the General File, and the Confidential File. The President’s Personal File contains materials interpreted by the White House Central Files unit as being primarily political, social or ceremonial in character. The companion Official File (OF), in contrast, contains materials interpreted as being primarily official or semi-official in nature.

Since documents received by the White House often contained a mixture of personal and official information, the distinction between the two series is very imprecise. A third series within the White House Central Files, the General File, acts as an index, primarily by name, to both the Official File and the President's Personal File.

President Truman's President’s Personal File contains 6,249 numbered files pertaining to broad subject areas, organizations and individuals having business with the President. The files are elaborately cross-referenced both among other files in the President’s Personal File, and among the files of the Official File and the General File. A single original document may be represented by five or six cross-references distributed under file headings devoted to agencies, individuals, countries and subjects. The cross-references typically give a document's correspondents, date and purpose, as well as other appropriate information. A researcher may follow these cross-reference trails through the three linked file series in search of related documents.

Below is an alphabetical index to the President's Personal File. This is intended as a starting place for research. The numbers that appear after the names are always for numbered files, never for boxes. A file number may represent one folder or multiple boxes. Please see the folder title list to determine box numbers.
