Description
The William J. Donovan Foundation was created in the early 1980s with the goal of promoting the life and legacy of Donovan, the head of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the American intelligence agency active during World War II. The Foundation’s membership and Board of Directors met annually, and the collection contains minutes of meetings, reports, and financial records that detail the work of the organization. The mainstay of the group was Geoffrey Jones, whose extensive correspondence with members and others is an important part of the records.
