MS 106.3.1.7 Roosevelt Campobello International Park Commission 1963-1993 5 boxes

Arranged chronologically. The Roosevelt Campobello International Park was dedicated in 1964 as a unique memorial to United States President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The park is located at the southeastern end of the Canadian Island of Campobello, and was created as a tribute to the cooperation and lasting friendship between Canada and the United States. Funded by the federal government of each country, it is the only international park in the world located in one country and administered jointly by an International Park Commission with equal representation from both countries.
William Cohen was appointed as an alternate on the International Park Commission in 1985, and became a Commission member on May 12, 1986. Records in this subseries include minutes, memos, and correspondence produced by the Commission, plus a 25-year history of the Park written in 1989.

Access to records in this sub series is restricted until 2014. Consult the Special Collections Department for further information.
