Subseries 3. Memoranda and Correspondence

Scope and Content Notes:

This section of material contains all major correspondence written to and from Thornburgh during his year as Under-Secretary-General for Administration and Management. In addition, there is a large section of memoranda both to and from Thornburgh, most regarding financial restructuring, including the "six month plan[s] of action," which would state the goals and the plans of each department and office to "clean up their financial act."

Of particular interest in these files are two letters written to Thornburgh, each having to do with Thornburgh's final report to the Secretary General, from Presidents Clinton and Bush. Both of these letters commend Thornburgh for his work in the UN and his tireless efforts as a public servant.
