Scope and content

Series consists of subject files of the Director-General on diverse matters. The first transfer dates from the tenure of René Maheu, however, records in some files date from before this time. Each transfer is arranged in rough alphabetical order and thus the series as a whole is arranged in a repeating alphabetical order. In general, the files were transferred at the end of a Director-General's term in office. Files contain correspondence, speeches, reports, and handwritten notes.
