In 1964, the John F. Kennedy Library Project undertook an oral history program to record and preserve the recollections of prominent and private individuals, both in and out of the Kennedy administration. These oral recollections were not meant to be memorials to John F. Kennedy, but rather a contribution to the understanding of the Kennedy era. Part I of UPA's microform publication, TheJohn F. KennedyPresidentialOralHistory Collection, consists of interviews with people from various executive departments. The interviewees relate their particular insights, analyses, and evaluations of the various issues and crises confronting American foreign and domestic policies in the early 1960s. Within Part I, the researcher interested in interviewees intimate with the various foreign policy crises will find oral histories from: Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., special assistant to the president; Roger Hilsman, director, Bureau of Intelligence and Research, State Department, and assistant secretary of state for Far Eastern affairs; W. Averell Harriman, undersecretary of state for political affairs; and Walt Rostow, chairman, Policy Planning Council, State Department.
