Description

Scope and Content

The office files of the American Institute of Pacific Relations and the international Institute of Pacific Relations, containing correspondence and reports concerned with international conferences, research programs, and publications programs of both Institutes, and relating to the political, economic, and social problems in eastern and southern Asia and the South Pacific, as well as with problems of American foreign policy. There are many travel letters and on-the-spot reports relating to conditions in China, Japan, Russia, Australia, the Philippines, India, and Pakistan during the period 1933 to 1954.

Oversized Materials

Oversize materials: Financial records-ledgerbooks (59 volumes), Photographs, Scrapbooks (3 volumes)

Pacific Relations Oversized Ledgers

(59 ledgers, various sizes, mostly oversize, in 18 small flatBoxes (Flat Boxes 414-431.)

(The ledgers are grouped below by the AIPR division they appear to belong to, and within divisions by subject (receipts, disbursements, trial balances, other). This is not always clear: for instance, the International Publications Fund, listed here as a separate division, may be a division of the AIPR or, judging from some of the ledgers, a subdivision of the American Council. Where possible ledgers have been Boxed and listed in chronological sequence, with out-of-sequence ledgers listed afterward. There are occasional apparent overlaps between ledgers, and very frequent gaps in series.)
