Records of the National Security Council (RG 273)

This record group is for the records of the independent office within the White House, headed by the National Security Advisor, and staffed to assist the President in the development of national security policies and programs. Because of declassification problems, and because the records may include only the finished version of an NSC document, it is sometimes more advantageous for researchers to use records in a Department of State lot file relating to the work of the NSC.

You can search the National Archives Catalog for entries from RG 273 or see a description in the Guide to Federal Records.
