Luis Acle was a native of Mexico who worked as Associate Director in the White House Office of Public Liaison under Carl Anderson from August 1985 to August 1986. He handled outreach to various ethnic groups, most notably Hispanics, Asian-American, Italian-American and Arab-American organizations.

His collection has a preliminary arrangement consisting of five series: Series I: Administrative Files; Series II: Issue Files - Asian and Italian Americans; Series III: Organization Files - Asian and Italian Americans; Series IV: Events File; Series V: Organization Files - Hispanic and Arab Americans. This arrangement is based on the original materials dividers found within Mr. Acle’s original material from the White House.

After Acle left the White House, many of his files were utilized by others in the Office of Public Liaison for use in their ongoing work. Some of these files were checked out by others in Public Liaison, and never returned to Acle’s collection.

In addition, Acle material can be found in OA 15060 and OA 15675. These boxes are within the Rudy Beserra collection of the Office of Public Liaison.
