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.
