An estimated 5,200 pages consist of diary entries and dictated correspondence. This material is filed in folders entitled "DDE Diary," "Personal Diary," or "DDE Dictation." Found here are not only diary entries but also copies of letters from the President to government and political associates, and to personal friends. Periodically the President dictated notes for his diary and on other occasions his personal secretary, Mrs. Ann Whitman, recorded appointments and summarized events. The diary was not systematically maintained, however. The bulk of the actual diary entries falls into the years 1953-56. These so-called diary folders were also used as a convenient file for copies of letters dictated by the President. During the later years of the Administration this dictated correspondence was filed in folders labeled "DDE Dictation." Most issues of concern to President Eisenhower are covered in his diary and letters. These reveal much about the President's political philosophy in general, as well as his private views on more specific issues such as McCarthyism, the Bricker Amendment, or civil rights.
Another prominent category consists of approximately 3,000 pages of memos of telephone conversations. Most of the more detailed conversations are dated prior to 1959. Much, although not all, of the material after that date consists merely of telephone logs or brief entries regarding phone calls. A significant proportion of the conversations are between the President and his Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles. In addition, a considerable number of conversations between the President and Under Secretary of State Walter Bedell Smith (on Indochina), Herbert Brownell, and George Humphrey are included. Scattered discussions with Robert Anderson, William Rogers, Christian Herter, Ezra Taft Benson, various Congressional leaders, and the President's personal friends may also be found. Topics discussed in these phone conversations include the Bricker Amendment, McCarthyism, Indochina, the Middle East, Little Rock & Civil Rights, Congressional relations, politics, and speech planning.
The largest body of material in this series consists of official White House staff memoranda, reports, correspondence, summaries of Congressional correspondence, and duplicate copies of Cabinet minutes and Legislative Leaders Meeting notes. These types of documents are found in folders labeled variously as "Miscellaneous," "Goodpaster (to be distinguished from the intelligence briefings compiled by Andrew Goodpaster)," "Staff Memos," and after 1957 "Staff Notes." A major segment of this official memoranda category consists of the memoranda of President Eisenhower's conversations in the White House. These were prepared by such staff members as Andrew Goodpaster, John Eisenhower, Bryce Harlow, Jack Z. Anderson, Wilton Persons, Edward McCabe, Robert Merriam, and Arthur Minnich. Many of the "memcons" prepared by Goodpaster and Eisenhower cover defense and space programs, strategic planning, nuclear testing and disarmament, intelligence matters, foreign policy, budgetary problems, government organization, and administrative subjects. A number of the memoranda concerning disarmament and space programs have recently been declassified.
Also noteworthy are the numerous records of conversations between the President and individuals or small groups from the Senate or the House. These provide insights into Congressional attitudes on a multitude of issues ranging from the Bricker Amendment to mutual security. Other memoranda cover meetings between the President and veterans organizations, minority groups, state governors, and Republican party leaders.
An estimated 9,000 pages fall into this staff memoranda category. Approximately 40 to 50 percent is presently security-classified.
From 1956 until the end of the Administration the White House Staff Research Group, headed successively by Albert P. Toner and Christopher H. Russell, prepared two- to three- page summaries of activities and programs of various executive branch agencies. The compilation of these "Toner Notes" as they were called, was done on virtually a daily basis. Typical summaries contain entries from several different agencies. Frequently, at least one or more of the entries are classified. Thus, roughly three-fourths of the approximately 4,000 pages of Toner Notes remains classified.
Beginning in 1958 the President received, in addition to the Toner notes, intelligence briefings prepared by Andrew Goodpaster or John Eisenhower. The approximately 500 pages of briefings consist of synopses of Central Intelligence Agency and State Department intelligence information on international affairs. All of these briefings are at present security-classified.
Remaining types of material in this series include typed lists of individuals to whom the President sent signed letters and the Presidential appointment schedules. These schedules are, with the exception of scattered Secret Service reports, duplicated in the President's Appointment Books which are found elsewhere in the Library's holdings.
