Scope Note

Mariam Bell (1954- ) joined the White House staff in September 1986. She was initially a Staff Assistant within the Office of Public Liaison’s Social Services Division (later called Domestic Division), which was headed by Carl Anderson. After Anderson left the White House staff in October 1987, Bell worked for Mary Dewhirst, followed by Juanita Duggan when Duggan joined the staff in January 1988. Bell was promoted from Deputy Assistant Director to Deputy Associate Director in February 1988, and became an Associate Director in June of that year.

This collection also includes work product from Bell’s direct predecessor, Carol Hornby Solon. The Library created a small collection for Hornby Solon from material previously assigned to Bell. Bell carried over some of Hornby Solon’s folders and added her own material to them. These were retained within Mariam Bell’s collection. More of Mariam Bell’s work product can be found in the collection of her two supervisors, Carl Anderson and Juanita Duggan.

The Mariam Bell collection consists of four series: SERIES I: Subject File; SERIES II: Events; SERIES III: Chronological File; and SERIES IV: Mailings.

SERIES I: SUBJECT FILE (3.8 l.ft.; OAs 17951, 17963, 17972)
SERIES II: EVENTS ( 2.5 l.ft.; OAs 17973, 19273)
SERIES IV: MAILINGS (1.8 l.ft., OA 19356)
