Rockefeller Foundation Archives,1910-(1912-1989).

The Rockefeller Foundation Archives documents the organization and operation of the Rockefeller Foundation from its creation in 1913 to 1989. The records are international in scope, as the Foundation has awarded the majority of its grants outside the United States. Excellent documentation exists for the Foundation field offices around the world. Correspondence, institutional minutes, internal and special reports, officers' diaries, staff files, photographs, and related materials document the entire grant-making process, the evolution of the Foundation's programs and policies, and the historical and intellectual contexts in which grants were made. Topics covered by the records include but are not limited to medical education, public health, and nursing; agricultural and natural sciences;population sciences; the arts, humanities, and social sciences; and international relations.
