Note from the original curator of the Lehman Suite

The Robert G. A. Jackson UNRRA Papers were presented to The Herbert H. Lehman Papers at the School of International Affairs, Columbia University by Sir Robert G. A. Jackson, October, 1976. 

This collection is a most valuable addition to our holdings of UNRRA material. Examination of the attached checklist will show the importance of these documents. Sir Robert's generous gift will afford scholars an opportunity to better understand the complexities involved in the executive organization and management of this international organization. In the future, no study of UNRRA will be complete without reference to these papers.
