The Kissinger Conversations, Supplement II: A Verbatim Record of U.S. Diplomacy, 1969-1977 updates the National Security Archive’s substantial collection of documents focusing on Henry Kissinger’s roles in policymaking and diplomacy under Presidents Richard M. Nixon and Gerald R. Ford…This new collection adds 971 freshly declassified memoranda of telephone conversation (telcons) and nine memoranda of conversation (memcons) of White House and State Department meetings. Almost all of these documents were declassified at the specific request of the National Security Archive. Among them are recently declassified telcons from the Richard Nixon Presidential Library of conversations between Kissinger, President Nixon, Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird, and CIA director Richard Helms, among others.” – From resource overview
