Classification should ti be determined by the office of origin. In some cases histori- cal. papers may be so sensitive that the office of origin may wish to retain the sole copy. In this case a note should be sent to the Chairman setting forth the name of the paper, the date, the off i.ce of control and the writer. This information 5.

Mr. 25X1A9a added that it might be wise to make more than an original and one copy; additional copies to be held by the office of origin. There would, therefore, be copies available if at a later date further distribution were required or if there were created a central depository for all CIA histories. Mr. further 25X1A9a mentioned that if possible papers should be sent forward with one origiinal and one xerox copy as flimsies are very hard to bind. 25X1A9a 6, Mr. - mentioned papers that had been written by Support elements as contributions to Clandestine Service his- tories. In most cases these represent Support Service histories and should be forwarded for binding under a Support Service cover with a cross reference notation that they are also inclu- ded in the Clandestine Service catalog of historiesa 7. The Chairman then received progress reports from the various offices as follows: 25X1A9a a) OC -- Mr. - reported that Mr.~ has made 25X1A9a considerable progress on the second section of the OC narra- tive history which will bring the record up to 1951. This should be completed in the early spring. However, Mr. - 25X1A9a does not think that he wants to renew his contract after that date so that-OC will have to look around for another annuitant to be placed under contract. In this regard Mr. 25X1A9a suggested that be alerted to the possibility of 25X1A9a screening some of the prospective retirees for possible use as consultants. 25X1A9a b) OTR -- Mr. reported no progress but hopes 25X1A9a to get back to more active writing himself after the first of the year. c) OS -- Mr.- reported no progress for the moment 25X1A9a but hopes that as soon as he has finished a special report he will be able to give more time to the historical program. d) Medical Services -- Mr,- reported no progress. 25X1A9a Medical Services are confronted with quite a problem. Tech- nicians will find it difficult to write historical papers and the staff itself' is so small that they have no time to do so. Mr. suggested using an annuitant under contract and Mr. said that unfortunately they had no annuitants who could be used.

Mr. - hopes to bring on another annuitant under contract. g) OL -- Mr. _ reported that all offices with the exception of one or two were finished with research and in the drafting stage. 25X1A9a h) ODDS -- Mr. said that Mr. was making progress in researching on the origins of the Office of the DDSO 25X1A9 25X1A9 8.
