Series I: Creation of UNRRA and Missions, 1942-1945

This series contains several folders relating to the creation of UNRRA, including reports and correspondence that outline the scope of its responsibilities, its relationships with other relief organizations, and its interactions with the US military. There are also folders on the Balkan mission, which brought relief to Greece, Yugoslavia, and Albania, and the Poland mission. Both of these files cover the organization, goals, and plans of action involved in each mission.
