Collection contains the office files that Gloria Walters created when she served as Archivist/Records Retention Manager at the Ford Foundation and was based in the Foundation's Information Services, Archives and Records Retention unit. The collection is comprised of 3 series. The first series, Subject files, documents Walters' general activities in leading the Foundation's archives and records retention functions and supporting the larger Information Services department, primarily between 1993 and 1996, whereas the second series, Automation project files, specifically concerns the archive's automation project. Files in the third series, Researcher files, were removed from the Subject files series during processing and closed to access because of concerns over the privacy of the Foundation archive's researchers.
Collection contains the office files that Robert Mayer created during his time as Officer-in-Charge of the Ford Foundation's Logistical Services unit. Logistical Services operated within the Foundation's Division of Administration and included both a Records Services and Buildings Services department. Materials in the collection appear to chiefly relate to Mayer's responsibilities over the Records Services department as well as his involvement in the larger activities of the Division of Administration.
