The People-to-People Program was an international exchange initiative of President Dwight D. Eisenhower begun in 1956. The program had numerous committees for a variety of initiatives; Richard Richman was on the Executive Committee of Fine Arts Committee (FAC) and was elected president circa 1963. These files, which appear to be those of FAC Executive Director Eleanor Mitchell, were probably given to Richman at that time. Materials include incoming and outgoing correspondence, exhibition files, printed materials and other documents related to FAC's work organizing exhibitions and exchanges from 1956-1963. Also found are printed materials and correspondence regarding other People-to-People committees.
