Administrative history

The RDC chronological series contains the records of Lord Coleridge (Richard Duke Coleridge), the first Executive Secretary of the North Atlantic Council (1952 - 1970). The post of Executive Secretary was created following the 1952 reorganization of NATO and the creation of the post of Secretary General. The Executive Secretary, under the direction of the Secretary General and the Deputy Secretary General directed the work of the Office of the Secretary General and coordinated the general activity of the international staff; he acted as secretary to the Council and was responsible to the Secretary General for programming its work and for seeing that actions were initiated on decisions of the Council; he was responsible for supervising the work of the secretaries of the committees of the Council; on those aspects of the work of the Organization which were not the direct responsibility of one Assistant Secretary General, the Executive Secretary maintained at the appropriate level, liaison with delegations and with the Office of the Standing Group Liaison Officer.In 1956, a reorganisation of the Executive Secretariat led to the transfer of responsibilities of personnel management, conference services, recruitment which came under the direction of a new Director of Administration. From 1957 to 1967, the Executive Secretariat was given the responsibility of supervising civil emergency planning and between 1966 and 1970 it was also in charge of crisis management and communications.Lord Coleridge was succeeded by his Deputy, Mr. K.W. Andreae (KWA) on 1 August 1970.
