Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Bradley H. Patterson, Jr., served as an Executive Assistant, Special Consultant to the President in the office of Leonard Garment. The file group reflects Patterson’s responsibilities in civil rights, plans for the American Revolution Bicentennial celebration, oversight of both the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment of the Humanities, U.S.-American Jewish affairs, Native Americans, and cable TV regulation. Patterson also has a three (3) box series entitled “The Late Accretion File.” The files consist of an alpha-subject series that approximately parallels the Alpha-Subject Files in the Patterson papers but was added after the main body of documents had already been processed. The emphasis of the documents in this file is on African Americans.
38 linear feet, 6 linear inches; 88 boxes
