The most significant parts of the papers are those which describe Heckert's work with the the Carnegie Institution, Bretton Woods Committee, the National Academy of Sciences, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, and Catalyst, Inc., an organization concerned with improving educational and career opportunities for women. In this capacity, Heckert was an important advocate for educational reform, investment in scientific training, and high technology. The files contain the usual information packets and agendas issued to directors or trustees, covering such subjects as overall policy, financial management, and the appointment of executive officers. Heckert also served on the boards of several state and local organizations, particularly the Longwood Foundation, and the files contain substantial information on the management of Longwood Gardens.
The business activities series covers Heckert's tenure on the boards of the American Stores Company (parent of Acme Markets), the St. Regis Paper Company, the Sperry Corporation, and Unisys Corporation. Among the professional and trade associations represented are the National Association of Manufacturers, the Advisory Committee for Trade Negotiations, the Business Council, and the Society of the Chemical Industry. The primary focus is on business lobbying for tax reform and free trade, including coverage of the Uruguay Round of GATT and the work leading up to the North American Free Trade Agreement. Among the files for arranging meetings are a number of brochures and menus for the Homestead Hotel in Hot Springs, Va.
There is relatively little information about Heckert's role at Du Pont. Most of the material is routine information supplied to directors. There is a history of the Textile Fibers Dept. and papers relating to celebrating the 25th anniversary of Du Pont Japan, Ltd.
The third series consists of copies of Heckert's speeches before a number of business and civic venues, arranged chronologically.
