    The OMD Fonds comprises the records of the Managing Directors, the Deputy Directors and the Personal Advisors to the Managing Director.

Tranche 1 includes: the papers of 1) Ivar Rooth; 2) Per Jacobsson; 3) Pierre-Paul Schweitzer; 4) H. Johannes Witteveen; 5) Jacques de Larosière; and, 6) Michel Camdessus (1987-1989). Additionally, tranche 1 includes the records of the four Deputy Managing Directors: H. Merle Cochran; Frank A. Southard Jr.; William B. Dale; and, Richard D. Erb.
