The African Affairs Directorate records contained very few actual “staff” collections. We have identified two separate staff collections: the Alison Rosenberg collection and the Helen Soos collection. The remainder of all staff work within this office is contained in this collection. This includes work product for Herman Cohen, Philip Ringdahl, Fred Wettering,and additional material for Helen Soos and Alison Rosenberg.

This collection is arranged into four series: SERIES I: Country File (RAC Boxes 1-12); SERIES II: Subject File (RAC Boxes 13-17); SERIES III: Filing Material (RAC Boxes 17-18); SERIES IV: Chronological File (RAC Boxes 18-22)

SERIES I: COUNTRY FILE (15 l.ft.; RAC Box 1-12)
SERIES II: SUBJECT FILE (5.5 l.ft.; RAC Box 13-17)
SERIES III: FILING MATERIAL (1.5 l.ft.; RAC Box 17-18)
SERIES IV: CHRONOLOGICAL FILE (5.3 l.ft.; RAC Boxes 18-22)
