    Scope and Content of Collection

    The documents of the Far East Commission, spanning a period between November of 1945 and March of 1952, represent the broad agenda of the eleven-nation commission tasked with planning the operations and policies of post World War II Japan. Meeting minutes, commission documents, and memoranda have been arranged by month.

Correspondence and reports are also included, often prefaced by secretary general Nelson T. Johnson.
