Editing part of Volume 6 (1947-50) of The Papers of George Catlett Marshall

Completion of volume 6 and preliminary work on volume 7 of The Papers of George Catlett Marshall.

Edit the sixth of seven volumes of George C. Marshall's papers. The sixth volume includes documents (telegrams, letters, memorandums, speeches, etc.) written during his tenure as U.S. Secretary of State (January 1947-January 1949) and as head of the American Battle Monuments Commission and the American Red Cross (January 1949-September 1950). Nearly all documents published will be by Marshall, as opposed to staff-drafted for Marshall's signature. The decisions taken and activities undertaken in international relations by the United States during the early Cold War period (1945-50) continue to be controversial, much studied by students and professionals in many disciplines, and of influence in recent events.
