The Library does not currently have a full inventory of the Chron File for the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs. The material listed here is case files processed from the Chron File and made available for research. Please note, when a folder is available for research, it may still have withdrawn material due to Freedom of Information Act restrictions. Most frequent withdrawn material is national security classified material, personal privacy, protection of the President, etc.

If you are interested in submitting a FOIA request for access to any of the unavailable records or have any questions about these collections or series, please contact our archival staff.


The Chronological file of the National Security Advisor to the President was kept in a rough chronological format by NSC System I and System II case file numbers with some non-log items interspersed.

The National Security Council also maintained a System File within the National Security Council Executive Secretariat. This collection is also filed by System numbers. Both the Chron File and the System File often contain the same case file numbers. In most cases, one version of the case file is fuller than the other, including background material and memorandum. Please refer to the Executive Secretariat, National Security Council: System File for additional System case file material.
