SUMMIT OF INDUSTRIALIZED NATIONS (Williamsburg, VA: May 1983): Records


This economic summit, commonly referred to as the “G-7” meetings in the 1980s, was President Reagan’s third annual international economic summit and the only one hosted by the United States during his administration. The summit took place in historic Williamsburg, Virginia. 

Michael Deaver’s office was put in charge of the arrangements for this summit and Michael McManus of his office was the official head of the independent group organizing the Summit.  McManus retained his White House job and functions and worked closely with the Summit Group.  The Group had an official Executive Director running day to day operations out of Jackson Place. These records are part of that group’s working files.  McManus material can be found in this collection and you should see the McManus collection, Series II for further information about the organization of the Summit.


It is possible this collection will be considered federal records rather than presidential records at some point in the future.
