Table of contents What's This?
Description
The bulk of this collection consists mainly of negotiation files for each country the Foreign Bondholders staff were monitoring. The rest of the collection is made up of administrative records typical of a non-profit organization, such as Articles of Incorporation and bylaws, board correspondence, minutes, financial statements and reports. The papers in this collection cover the Foreign Bondholders Protective Council from their inception in 1933 to the late 1980s.
Background
Under Title II of the Securities Act of 1933, a provision was made for the creation of a Corporation of Foreign Security Holders, to be effective when the President of the United States "finds that its taking effect is in the public interest, and by proclamation so declares." It was contemplated that the activities of the new corporation would be similar to those of the British Corporation of Foreign Bondholders, which has an official status in negotiating with foreign issuers.
