Description: The Institute of Inter-American Affairs was established in 1942 under the Good Neighbor Policy of the administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Nelson A. Rockefeller served as first coordinator. The aims of the institute were to develop and administer a program of economic and social aid to various Latin American nations. These memoirs, conducted by James D. Williams and donated to the Oral History Collection, were conducted with the various officials and aid workers associated with the institute from 1942 to 1948. Recollections include testimony on the economic and social structure of the nations in which they worked, the formulation of early American aid policy, and memoirs of personal life and relations within the institute.
