Finding Aid
Subcollection: Organizations

Extent: 678 files

The Organizations subcollection details JDC’s partnerships with governmental and non-governmental organizations, including several United Nations agencies such as the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA); Jewish and nonsectarian philanthropic agencies; and U.S. and foreign governmental agencies during the years 1945-1954.

Arrangement
The Organizations subcollection is organized into five record groups:

U.S. Government
Foreign Governments
Intergovernmental
Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs)
Companies

Within each record group, files are arranged alphabetically by the organization’s name. Those organizations for which there are at least three files are categorized in series within the record groups, with each series titled according to the organization’s name. These series are listed first in alphabetical order. All of the files which appear after these series reflect organizations that have fewer than three files and therefore are not assigned to a series.
