Trade and Technology Department, 1992-2011

Accession: 1411Identifier: 1411-XXXI.


  • Creation: 1992-2011

Scope and Contents

The Trade and Technology Department was formed because of a wider reorganization of NAM’s Policy and Communications Division in 1994. Formerly known as the International Economic Affairs Department, it was responsible for all NAM activities related to technology policy, international trade, and international investment and finance. The materials are arranged into three subseries: Staff, Conferences and meetings, and Subject files. This series should be considered in conjunction with the International Economic Affairs Department.

The Staff subcommittee contains the papers from several NAM staff members within the department including Kitty Brims (1963-), associate director of international trade; Jerry Jasinowski (1939-), NAM president; Howard Lewis (1948-), vice president of the department; Marino Marcich (1964-), director of international investment finance;, and Robert “Judge” Morris (1944-), director of international trade. The Jasinowski files, it is important to note, are not his personal files but rather materials related to international economic affairs issues produced under Jasinowski’s signature. In the case of each individual, the bulk of the records are made up of correspondence, memoranda, and mailings covering the day-to-day activities of the department.

The Conferences and meetings subseries contains materials related to events held by NAM or attended by departmental staff. It includes the Americas, China, and India Issues Working Groups, Intellectual Property Subcommittee, Tax and Budget Policy Committee, and NAM Trade Forum meetings — an informal weekly meeting that brought government officials and trade experts together with NAM members to discuss a variety of issues related to international trade.

The Subject files subseries contains an assortment of records produced and collected by staff. These include internal departmental paperwork, newspaper clippings, Congressional testimony, NAM publications, and relevant policy documents.
