Content and Structure
The papers in the National Archive and Record Administration (NARA) in Washington D.C., which were of relevance to this project were taken from the Dept. of State Central files and from the papers of Ambassador John Tuthill. Some of these papers from the Tuthill collection are published in the US Foreign Relations Series. The papers included in this project, are ones which were declassified by the Dept. of State in NARA and which are now in the Tuthill family home. The originals are located in the National Archives. Some of the memoranda have sections which were not declassified and hence are marked out in black on the documents. The original reference codes from NARA are included in each individual dossier description. The Dept. of State Central Files were not collected as part of the Jean Monnet Documents Project, but were donated by a researcher. They have been added to this collection, since it is an artifical collection and because they refer to European affairs.
The documents are arranged according to subject within the units John Tuthill Papers and Dept. of State Central Files
