Abstract:

Correspondence, memoranda, minutes, reports, articles, drafts, speeches, notes, writings, interviews, appointment books, business records, name and subject files, printed matter, and photographs chiefly relating to Nitze's role in the formation of U.S. foreign and national security policy in the last half of the twentieth century.

Part I includes material from his tenure as U.S. assistant secretary of defense for international affairs, U.S. secretary of the navy, U.S. deputy secretary of defense, U.S. delegate to the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks, and as an advisor on national security to the John F. Kennedy, Jimmy Carter, and Ronald Reagan presidential campaigns. Also documents Nitze's World War II activities including work on the United States Strategic Bombing Survey and the European Recovery Program (later known as the Marshall Plan). Postwar topics include anti-ballistic missile treaty with the Soviet Union (1972), the Berlin crisis, civil defense, the Cuban Missile Crisis (1962), disarmament, the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (1963), nuclear weapons, and relations with the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

Also documents his association with the Atlantic Council of the United States, Committee on the Present Danger (U.S.), Council on Foreign Relations, Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (later the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies), and board of directors at Johns Hopkins and Harvard universities. Persons represented include Dean Acheson, Alexander Calder, Clark M. Clifford, John Paton Davies, John Foster Dulles, George F. Kennan, Yuli Kvitsinsky, Charles Burton Marshall, Robert S. McNamara, and Adlai E. Stevenson.

Part II relates chiefly to Nitze's service as ambassador-at-large and special advisor on arms control matters to the president and U.S. secretary of state during the Reagan administration. Documents his activities with the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency and continued association with the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies. Subjects include post-Cold War national security issues and events, strategic arms, negotiations with the Soviet Union, and the Persian Gulf War, 1991. Includes notes on meetings with U.S. Secretary of State George Pratt Shultz and drafts of his books, From Hiroshima to Glasnost: At the Center of Decision, a Memoir (1989) and Tension Between Opposites: Reflections on the Practice and Theory of Politics (1993).
