The Confidential File is one major component of the Eisenhower administration_s central repository of information_the White House Central Files. This file yields an intimate understanding of the Eisenhower White House. It consists of documents segregated by White House staff from the other White House Central Files due to their security or administratively classified contents or origin. This important archive is the main repository for correspondence, reports, memoranda, analyses, and studies composed by various executive departments and agencies, cabinet members and presidential advisers, Congress, and prominent public figures, for use by the President and senior officials in formulating domestic and foreign policies and programs. Part 3: Departments and Agencies Of special interest within the Confidential File are those segments dealing with government departments and agencies. Reports, memoranda, and correspondence from representative government departments_the Interior; Justice; Treasury; Commerce; Labor; Agriculture; Health, Education, and Welfare; and Housing and Urban Development_as well as such agencies as the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Bureau of the Budget offer in-depth analyses of the domestic political and economic situation. Reports from information-sensitive agencies, including the Psychological Strategy Board, Atomic Energy Commission and the Central Intelligence Agency, the departments of State and Defense, and the military services, shed new light on the Cold War and world crises, the world communist movement, and relations between the Eisenhower White House, allied western nations, and the emerging Third World.
