Rose Mary Woods served as the President’s personal secretary and executive secretary. The Rose Mary Woods materials consist
of five series: Correspondence, Legal Correspondence and Printed Materials, Trip Files, News Clippings and Printed Materials,
and Photographs. The Correspondence file consists primarily of perfunctory letters to and from admirers of Rose Mary Woods.
The remainder of the file group consists of Miss Woods’ notes, which include her observations on the legal and internal White
House Watergate problems pertaining to the 18 ½ minute tape gap, telephone conversations, legal briefs, reports, and annotated
news clippings. Most of the Materials in the News Clippings and Printed Material series are photocopies of newspaper or magazine
articles. The Trip Files consist primarily of background papers and information provided to staff members who accompanied
the President on his official trips in 1969 and 1972.
Most government records are in the public domain; however, this series includes commercial materials, such as newspaper clippings,
that may be subject to copyright restrictions. Researchers should contact the copyright holder for information.
