FAORO, PATRICIA: Files, 1981-1989


Office of Cabinet Affairs: Secretary, Staff Assistant, Executive Secretary, and Special Assistant


Patricia “Patsy” Faoro served in the Office of Cabinet Affairs for the entire length of the Reagan Administration. Faoro worked as a secretary, staff assistant, and executive secretary to Becky Norton Dunlop and Craig Fuller. At the end of the administration she was first a special assistant to Deputy Director Donald Clarey and finally the Cabinet Secretary, Nancy Risque. Much of her collection is administrative in nature, but it does contain some “record” copies of more substantive material.


The collection is arranged into two series: Series I: Staffing Memoranda and Series II: Subject File.
