Arthur F. Burns served as Counselor to the President. He was given broad responsibility in program and policy development
for the Nixon Administration. Although his primary role was in development of domestic programs, he did venture into international
matters in some economic programs. The subject files described here result from Burns’ activities during the transition and
early months of the administration, when he headed a series of task forces which developed program proposals. These reports
were sent to executive agencies and departments for review and comment. The subject files are comprised principally of the
comments returned to Burns by the agencies and departments.
