SCHARFEN, JONATHAN R.: Files, 1985-1988


Legal Advisor, NSC

Jonathan "Jock" Scharfen was the final legal advisor for the Reagan Administration National Security Council. His collection contains a number of boxes with folders pulled from other legal advisor's collections and then sent on to various Independent Counsel investigations. No effort was made to identify this material by collection or redistribute to various collections when it returned to the NSC at the close of the Reagan Administration.


Many of the boxes contain the work product of previous Legal Advisors including Paul Thompson, Robert Kimmitt and staff member Sam Maizel. The material often dates to time periods prior to Mr. Scharfen joining the staff and even in Kimmitt's case includes material from his work in the Jimmy Carter National Security Council.


As the Library processes this material, we will make every attempt to designate boxes containing non-Scharfen material. Currently the following boxes are noted for Robert Kimmitt, Paul Thompson and/or Sam Maizel material: Box 37 (91104), Box 40 (91107), Box 41 (91108), Box 58 (91653) and Box 91110.
