Scope & Content
The Norman Bailey collection consists of memos, correspondence, cables, news clippings, trip reports, and intelligence reports on international issues of human rights, nuclear proliferation, economic sanctions and strategies, and international economics. Bailey continued to use his Planning and Evaluation filing scheme after he became Senior Director of International Economic Affairs so there is no distinction made between these two offices in the collection.
Some of Bailey's International Economic Affairs work product may be found in his successor’s collection, the Roger W. Robinson collection. Bailey’s work as the chairman of the Sanctions Monitoring Group (SMG) is located within Jack Matlock’s SMG series.
The Bailey collection consists of three series: SERIES I: Policy Planning File, 1981-1983; SERIES II: International Economics File, 1981-1983, and SERIES III: Chronological File, 1981-1983.
The Policy Planning File consists of memos, correspondence, cables, news clippings, and intelligence reports on “global issues” such as import/exports, science and technology, communications, nuclear proliferation, economic sanctions and strategies, and human rights. This series is arranged alphabetically by large geographic regions (usually continent) and then chronologically.
The International Economics File consists of memos, correspondence, cables, news clippings, trip reports, and intelligence reports on topics dealing with international economics, specifically, energy, trade, global negotiations, international debt, oil and gas policy, technology transfer, and nuclear cooperation. This series also contains material regarding the Cancun Summit - The International Meeting on Cooperation and Development and the Summits of Industrialized Nations (G-7 Economic Summits) held in London, Ottawa, Versailles, and Williamsburg.. It is arranged alphabetically by subject and then chronologically.
The Chronological File consists of memos, correspondence, weekly reports, travel authorizations, and notes from Bailey regarding his work both policy planning and international economics. There is a document log filed at the beginning of each month (except for the last month, October 1983). This series is arranged chronologically.
