Egil "Bud" Krogh, Jr. was the Deputy Counsel to the President and, later, Deputy Assistant to the President for Domestic Affairs. His responsibilities included drugs, crime, law enforcement, housing, government reorganization, and transportation. The files record each of these responsibilities.
The Domestic Council was established by Executive Order 11541 (July 1, 1970) to formulate and to coordinate domestic policy recommendations to the President. During the Nixon administration, Council membership included the President and Vice President of the United States; the Secretaries of Agriculture, Commerce, Health, Education and Welfare, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Labor, Transportation, and Treasury; the Director of the office of Management and Budget; the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors; and other individuals as designated by the President. Council work was accomplished through ad hoc project committees set up to deal with either broad program areas or specific problems. John D. Ehrlichman was the Executive Director of the Council staff. Support staff could be drawn from department and agency experts, as well as from the Office of Management and Budget.
