The contents of this series are complementary to those in series SZ/ACSP, SZ/NATO, and SZ/OEEC, and are chiefly concerned with the question of the supply of scientific and technical personnel.
There is no evidence that Solly Zuckerman was a member of any of the committees to which this series relates, nor that he attended any of the meetings documented. The papers were sent to him either because of their relevance to his activities as Chairman of the Committee on Scientific Manpower of the Advisory Council on Scientific Policy or as a member of the NATO Science Committee (files SZ/OECD/1-3), or in his capacity as Chief Scientific Adviser to the government (files SZ/OECD/4-5).
Sub-file SZ/OECD/1/3 relates to the Working Party on Mediterranean Educational Development, 1965-66
Sub-file SZ/OECD/2/3 relates to the Working Party to Review the Pilot Teams' Activity of the Committee for Scientific Research, 1965 and Sub-file SZ/OECD/2/4 to the Working Party on Science Aid, 1965.
The bulk of the material in File SZ/OECD/5 relates to the 1966 meeting and includes many papers produced by the Interim Committee preparatory to that meeting. Material relating to the earlier and later meetings is fragmentary. Solly Zuckerman did not attend any of the meetings.
