Sources for Foreign Relations, 1969–1976, Volume V

The Foreign Relations statute requires that the published record in the Foreign Relations series include all records needed to provide comprehensive documentation on major U.S. foreign policy decisions and significant U.S. diplomatic activity. It further requires that government agencies, departments, and other entities of the U.S. Government engaged in foreign policy formulation, execution, or support cooperate with the Department of State Historian by providing full and complete access to records pertinent to foreign policy decisions and actions and by providing copies of selected records.

The editors of the Foreign Relations series have complete access to all the retired records and papers of the Department of State: the central files of the Department; the special decentralized files (“lot files”) of the Department at the bureau, office, and division levels; the files of the Departmentʼs Executive Secretariat, which contain the records of international conferences and high-level official visits, correspondence with foreign leaders by the President and Secretary of State, and memoranda of conversations between the President and Secretary of State and foreign officials; and the files of overseas diplomatic posts. All of the Departmentʼs indexed central files for these years have been permanently transferred to the National Archives and Records Administration (Archives II) at College Park, Maryland. Most of the Departmentʼs decentralized office (or lot) files covering this period, which the National Archives deems worthy of permanent retention, have been transferred from the Departmentʼs custody to Archives II.

The editors of the Foreign Relations series also have full access to the papers of President Lyndon B. Johnson and other White House foreign policy records. Presidential papers maintained and preserved at the Presidential libraries include some of the most significant foreign affairs-related documentation from the Department of State and other Federal agencies including the National Security Council, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Department of Defense, and the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Department of State historians also have full access to records of the Department of Defense, particularly the records of the Secretaries of Defense and their major assistants, and full access to the records of the Central Intelligence Agency.

Sources for Foreign Relations, 1964–1968, Volume XXXII

In preparing this volume, the editors made extensive use of some of the most authoritative sources on President Johnsonʼs policies on the [Page XIV]Dominican Republic, Cuba, Haiti, and British Guiana/Guyana: the Presidential papers and other White House records at the Lyndon B. Johnson Library. Within the National Security File (NSF), the Country Files for the four countries covered were the most important. Next in importance in the NSF, and reflecting the strong intelligence emphasis of this volume, was the Intelligence File. Other important files in the NSF were the Aides Files, Files of Gordon Chase, which were valuable for the Dominican Republic and Cuba. Also of use from the NSF were Memos to the President (from McGeorge Bundy and Walt Rostow), the National Intelligence Estimates File, National Security Council Meetings, Special Head of State Correspondence, and the Agency Files, SIG (Senior Review Group). The SIG oversaw policy towards Cuba in the later part of the Johnson administration.

Of the collections outside the NSF at the Johnson Library, by far the most significant were the audiotapes of President Johnsonʼs telephone conversations, to which the editors had full access for 1964–1968 thanks to the cooperation of the staff of the Johnson Library. Johnson frequently discussed the details of his foreign policy towards the Dominican Republic and Cuba with his key advisers and senior members of Congress. As such, the tape recordings provide an unparalleled perspective on decision-making often missing in more formal documentation. The editors transcribed numerous tape recordings specifically for this volume; these transcripts are printed both as documents and in the annotation as extracts. The Thomas C. Mann Papers, especially the transcripts of his telephone conversations with Johnson, were also valuable in revealing the thinking behind the Presidentʼs policies.

The records of the Department of State were also indispensable in documenting foreign policy formulation. Although the President made the important decisions, the Department of State was primarily responsible for the development, coordination, and implementation of the administrationʼs policy in the region. The editors of this volume relied heavily upon the Departmentʼs “subject-numeric” central files, which contain the essential telegrams, memoranda, correspondence, and other records of U.S. diplomacy. The most valuable subject numeric central file for the Dominican Republic was 23–9 DOM REP, used for rebellion and coups, but, in effect, often a virtual catchall for Department of State documents on the Dominican Republic. Other files of special note for the Dominican Republic were POL 1 DOM REP, POL 2 DOM REP and POL 15 DOM REP. For Cuba the subject-numeric central files were not as significant, in part because there was no Embassy in Cuba and therefore no telegraphic exchanges. The best central file documentation is concentrated in the general POL CUBA–US and POL 1 CUBA–US files. POL 33–4 CUBA–US is the file for the dispute over Cuban fishermen in U.S. waters that escalated into the Guantanamo water crisis. Haitian documents in the central files are spread over a [Page XV]variety of files, the most significant of which is POL HAI–US, the general file for U.S.-Haitian relations. For British Guiana (after 1966 Guyana) a variety of central files were useful. The ones most cited in the volume are POL 7 GUYANA, covering the visit of Prime Minister Linden Burnham to the United States, POL 14 BR GU dealing with elections in the colony before independence, and POL 15 BR GU the general file for the government of the then British colony. There is also a specific file for the colonial government of British Guiana, POL 19 BR GU, which was also of use. All the central files consulted and cited in the volume are in the list of sources with an explanation of what topics or issues they cover.

The editors also did extensive research in the Departmentʼs “lot” files. By far the most significant was a file that is still under the custody of the Department of State, the INR/IL Historical Files: the Departmentʼs files on intelligence issues, liaison with the Central Intelligence Agency, and covert operations. Without access to this collection, this volume would have been incomplete. These files were crucial for all four chapters—Dominican Republic, Cuba, Haiti, and Guyana. Also of special significance were the following office files of Assistant Secretaries for Inter-American Affairs: Lot 66 D 65, Lot 70 D 150, and Lot 70 D 295. The Inter-American Affairs Bureauʼs files for the Caribbean, ARA/CAR, Lot 69 D 158, and the Files for the Coordinator of Cuban Affairs, ARA/CCA Files, Lot 73 D 191, were also of special value. Secretary of State Dean Ruskʼs memoranda of conversations for 1964, Lot 65 D 330, and the Policy Planning Staffʼs files, S/P Files, Lot 72 D 139, were also of note. All lot files consulted and cited in the volume are in the list of sources.

The files of the Central Intelligence Agency were a crucial source for this volume. In the case of the Dominican Republic and Cuba, accounts of many key inter-agency meetings—including meetings with the President—were found only in CIA files. These were in the Director of Central Intelligence (Helms) Files, Job 80–B01285A, and Executive Registry Files, Job 80–R01580R and Job 80–B016776R. The National Intelligence Center (NIC) Files, Job 79–R01012A, provided access to National Intelligence Estimates and Special Intelligence Estimates and related documents. All CIA files consulted and cited in the volume are in the list of sources. Related intelligence files for the Johnson administration under the custody of the National Security Council (when the research was done) were also valuable, especially for the Dominican Republic. Department of Defense Files, both the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs, were consulted for all chapters for 1964–1968. They are cited in the list of sources.

Almost all of this documentation has been made available for use in the Foreign Relations series thanks to the consent of the [Page XVI]agencies mentioned, the assistance of their staffs, and especially the cooperation and support of the National Archives and Records Administration.

The following list identifies the particular files and collections used in the preparation of this volume. The declassification and transfer to the National Archives of these records is in process. Most of the sources consulted in the preparation of this volume have been declassified and are available for review at the National Archives and Records Administration.
