Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Rose Mary Woods served as the President’s personal secretary and executive secretary. The Rose Mary Woods materials consist of five series: Correspondence, Legal Correspondence and Printed Materials, Trip Files, News Clippings and Printed Materials, and Photographs. The Correspondence file consists primarily of perfunctory letters to and from admirers of Rose Mary Woods. The remainder of the file group consists of Miss Woods’ notes, which include her observations on the legal and internal White House Watergate problems pertaining to the 18 ½ minute tape gap, telephone conversations, legal briefs, reports, and annotated news clippings. Most of the Materials in the News Clippings and Printed Material series are photocopies of newspaper or magazine articles. The Trip Files consist primarily of background papers and information provided to staff members who accompanied the President on his official trips in 1969 and 1972.
