Collection Scope and Content Notes


This subseries pertains to the time when Thornburgh assigned Waldman and Seif, his two principal aides, to conduct a top-to-bottom review of the division’s management structure at the very outset of their arrival in Washington in 1975. This ultimately resulted in wide-spread and often especially difficult personnel changes, including the replacement or reassignment of most deputies and section chiefs. Additionally, a Public Integrity Section was created, which was a major contribution to accomplishments of the tenure of Thornburgh and Waldman. Related research, correspondence, drafts and comprehensive reports in this subseries enumerate the complexities associated with this reorganization and include the final report to Attorney General Griffin Bell. The material in this subseries dates from 1975 to 1977.
