THOMPSON, PAUL: Files, 1983-1985

Executive Secretary, NSC

Deputy Executive Secretary and Staff Legal Counsel, NSC


A number of Thompson's legal folders were pulled and then sent on to various Independent Counsel investigations. No effort was made to identify this material by collection or redistribute to the Thompson collection when it was returned to Jonathan Scharfen, Legal Advisor of the NSC at the close of the Reagan Administration.


As the Library processes this Scharfen material, we will make every attempt to designate boxes containing Paul Thompson material. Currently the following boxes in the Jonathan Scharfen collection 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.
