The Philleo Nash Files, part of the Staff Member and Office Files of the Harry S. Truman Papers, document some of his service as Special Assistant and Administrative Assistant to President Harry S. Truman. Nash left the material in these files at the conclusion of his government service and when the administration ended in 1953, his files were shipped to Kansas City as part of Mr. Truman's presidential papers, which Truman subsequently donated to the United States government.
