Scope and Content Note
Originally the Library did not have an identified collection for Frank Ursomarso. During the arrangement and determination of provenance for the Office of Communications, references to Ursomarso and his work product were referred to by other Communications staff members. The Library subsequently discovered the Ursomarso material had been filed with the White House Office of Records Management collection for Michael Baroody in the Office of Public Affairs. Baroody was Ursomarso's assistant in the Office of Communications and eventually became the Director of the Office of Public Affairs.
The Frank Ursomarso collection consists of four series: SERIES I: Subject File; SERIES II: Calendars; SERIES III: Chronological File and SERIES IV: Personnel File.
