Scope and content
Series documents the administrative aspects of the Secretary-General's responsibilities. The administrative filing system was arranged into the following broad functional areas: organization, general administration (SG's annual reports, departments, UNOG, meetings, public relations, etc.), buildings, finance and budget, and personnel (staff associations, Soviet and Chinese staff case files, top echelon posts, etc.). Correspondents are primarily senior staff and some member state representatives. Arranged in functional categories; please note that the last boxes of the series had been separated from the filing system so appear out of sequence.
