Detailed Description of the Records
Subcollection: Administration
Extent: 376 files
The Administration subcollection details JDC's governance, structure, leadership, policies, and operations during the years 1955-1964. These records detail the oversight and implementation of JDC's global humanitarian work, including its contributions to the ongoing reconstruction of European Jewish life and infrastructure in the wake of World War II; its support for the establishment of restitution organizations for Holocaust survivors; and its wide-ranging relief and rehabilitation support for education, health and emigration efforts in North Africa, which reflected both the growing interest of American Jews in assisting these Jewish communities and the political ramifications of independence movements in Tunisia and Morocco.

Other categories of material in this subcollection include: the Conference and Meetings series, which includes reports prepared for the annual Country Directors' Conferences that provide detailed information about the Jewish communities in each country where JDC operated, as well as statistical summaries and conference minutes; the Financial series, which testifies to the complex financial arrangements crucial to administering an international relief system in the post-WII era; the Personnel series; and the Publicity series, which includes press releases and news clippings about JDC activities and crisis responses.

Arrangement
The Administration subcollection is organized into seven series. Within each series, files are arranged alphabetically.
