Administrative history

This chronological series contains the working memoranda of the Standing Group (SG). These documents were prepared by the SG/MC secretariat in Washington.
They were notes or requests concerning draft memoranda or messages at annex.
SGWMs were submitted for information, revision or approval:

  • to a particular group in the SG structure
  • to NATO nations which were not members of the SG (i.e. other than the United States, the United Kingdom and France)
  • to a NATO official (often a member of the high command)

SGWMs were sometimes used as drafts of Military Committee memoranda (MCM).

Content and structure area

Scope and content

The documents contain mainly routine information on personnel changes, military exercises and information security. They were produced from 1954 to 1966.
On the cover page, the SG/MC secretariat indicated:

  • the recipient of the SGWM (usually the SG, sometimes the Steering Committee (SG/SC))
  • the reference of the document in which the SG or SG/SC had given its initial instructions
  • the reference of the document submitted to the SG or SG/SC for approval or information. This document was usually attached at annex (less often, it was reproduced in the body of the SGWM)
  • a reminder of the question or problem and the study progress made
  • if appropriate, the document was declared "approved" (see for example SGWM-5-65).

Any corrigenda (SGWM/cover page) were presented after the annexes.
