Administrative history

The PO series contains the memoranda issued by the Private Office of the Secretary General. The Private Office supports the Secretary General and the Deputy Secretary General in all aspects of their work. It is headed by a Director assisted by several Deputy Directors. The first two appointed directors held the title of Private Secretary. Although the Private Office of the Secretary General was established when the post of Secretary General was created at the 1952 Lisbon Ministerial Meeting, the PO reference only appears on the memoranda issued by the Private Office as from 1955. A few numbered memoranda addressed to Permanent Representatives dated 1953 and 1954 have been microfilmed.

Scope and content

Originally this series covered various types of correspondence, from private letters to memoranda addressed to delegations or to other NATO bodies. In the early 1970's a new series (SG) was created to cover personal communications by the Secretary General, and it was decided that PO memoranda would be used for formal documents addressed to Permanent Representatives for information or decision regarding the work of the Council. PO memoranda are also used as cover notes to forward reports or letters from another political or military body.
